Through the Lens
This Week in Photography
Colorful, tongue-in-cheek imagery abounds in Jacksonville, Florida based photographer Lizzie Darden’s photo narratives. Lizzie’s distinct style vividly balances colors, textures and visual puns.
Heyyyyy, it’s all gonna be okay, okay? Thanks to the humorous creatives cranking out work, we’re feeling super energized by this trend of playful “easy tiger” art creations.
Summer is beginning to warm us with those familiar tones, and these artists are fully embracing the glow. Get inspired by these lively retro vibes.
Emily Rickard | Columbus, Ohio
There’s something soothing in the brushstrokes of Emily Rickard’s abstract works. Her paintings exude joy and celebrate conceptual pop visuals.
