1. Johanna Tordjman
Johanna Tordjman’s vulnerable portraits are explorations of quarantine. Fall in love with her quiet and powerful style as she pairs hyperrealistic paintings with the Google street view of where the subject was painted.
2. Zahra Holm
Holm creates beautiful anthropomorphic abstract paintings. Prepare to get lost in the muted color palettes of her works.
3. Alireza Shojaian
These works were made for fans of rich color. Shojaian’s portraits give viewers an intimate glimpse into seemingly deeply private moments of the subjects.
4. Andrea Tyrimos
The hyperrealistic-yet-unfinished works of Tyrimos are stunning commentaries on our minds and mental illness. Be sure to experience her works on Artsper (along with those of other young painters) because they often come accompanied with an audio element, too.
5. Hazel Miller
In creating her stunning portraits, Miller explores womanhood and selfhood with nods to older art history greats. Uncover the stories behind her faceless portraits.
6. Sebastian Villabona
Inspired by Brutalism and with moments of graffiti-like effects, the work of Villabona is as complex as it is simple. Create your own narrative with these Deconstructivist works.
7. Mathilde Polidori
At first glance, Mathilde Polidori’s contour portraits seem uncomplicated, but it’s quite the opposite. The artist’s clear understanding and manipulation of light and shadows makes her portraits shine, not to mention her exemplary use of primary colors.
8. Tiffany Bouelle
Bouelle expertly uses geometric shapes to create unique abstract portraits. Dive into the ingenious line work of her and other young painters while simultaneously appreciating her bold color choices.
9. Yanin Ruibal
Explore the surrealist worlds of Ruibal. With nods to the likes of Salvador Dalí, these paintings will twist your mind and delight your eyes.
10. Jessica Illacuci
As if staring into a paint can, Illacuci’s abstract works seem to move and mix in front of your eyes. With nods to early street art and abstractions, her works are mesmerizing.
