Arty Friday 2021: 10 Young Illustrators You Need to Know

Works selected for the Arty Friday painting collection

Black Friday is now Arty Friday… for a year as artistic as it is eco-responsible!

For this exceptional moment, Artsper has worked hand-in-hand with the talent agency MTArt, created by Marine Tanguy, to introduce you to 10 young contemporary artists every day! Today, we roll out the red carpet for artists who work in drawing. If these works blow you away, you can use the code ARTYFRIDAY21 to get a 5% discount on the entire Artsper website, through November 29th, 2021.

Whether in ink, gouache, watercolor, pen or pencil, drawing is a noble graphic art which is at the basis of all artistic training. Here are 10 works to celebrate the plurality and the richness of these young illustrators’ talent…
