Each week, as head of curation, I have the pleasure of exploring the treasure trove of uploads from Society6 artists to find the very best from around the community.
In this digest, allow me to do the discovering for you by highlighting new trends and rising artists that have caught my eye.

Here is a group of artists who are new to Society6 and doing some amazing work. It’s both exciting and inspiring to see so many active and talented artists joining our community each week. Let’s meet some!

Femke Warmer (Alkmaar, Netherlands)

Yin to my Yang
Life needs balance, don’t you think? I mean, whether or not we’re aware, balance is pretty crucial to our existence. These artists build upon the concept of yin and yang, giving it a new look and adding their own symmetry and harmony to the mix.
The stunning colorways inspired by nature often give us some of the most eye-catching infusions, like the poppy. These gorgeous and cheerful red-meets-orange flowers brighten any narrative, and these talented artists are using them to create some dynamic visuals.
