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.
Artists to Watch
Aftrisletter (Pontianak, Indonesia)
Jennifer Dahbura (Santa Ana, El Salvador)
Hemstitch Mill (Albany, New York)
Dewey Brian Saunders (Los Angeles, California)
Rachel Thalia Fisher (New York, New York)
Here, I highlight 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 a few!
I’m seeing a “school” of goldfish artwork swimming in this week. Goldfish are a symbol of prosperity and good fortune, plus they’re just so cute. Spend a few minutes with a fish and you’ll see just how much personality they really have.
There’s something warm and inviting about the earthy tones of a brown color scheme. Cocoa is calming and sophisticated, plus it’s always a good time of year for this elegant member of the color spectrum. Man, I want some hot chocolate…
Through the Lens
This Week in Photography
Let’s take a moment to meditate on the photos of 27MM. I use the word “meditate” due to the peaceful and balanced nature of Enric Gener’s (aka 27MM) work. Born on an island in the Mediterranean Sea, Enric has always drawn inspiration from the relationship between marine life and humans.
AnaiGreog | Constanta, Romania
Vivid color feast. Emotional stimulus droplets. Those are a few of the snap responses I have when I attempting to explain the work of AnaiGreog. Their work is characterized by interesting psychedelic kaleidoscopes where shape and color dance freely. Described as a love affair between Illustrator and Photoshop, these images come from a sincere love of “sharing.”
About the Curator
Hello there art friends. My name is Nathan Spoor, Head of Curation at Society6. I have over 25 years experience as an art curator for galleries and museums, I’ve written for several prominent art publications and published three books on contemporary art. I’m also a painter and one of the first group of artists that took the plunge and joined Society6 in 2009. Since 2015, I am the full-time Society6 curator, continuously thrilled to be on the forefront of surfacing so much amazing work, sharing rising artists, trending themes and color stories that spark inspiration and fuel the imagination.
Each day I dive into a sea of new art uploads on Society6, surrounded by a virtual treasure trove of artists from around the world sharing their original works paintings, photographs, illustrations and designs.
