We all know that Thanksgiving is 50% about the food, and 50% about the people. We already talked about food, so today we’re sharing a list of some of the brilliantly creative people we’re thankful for this year.
Lauren is an extremely skilled travel and creative portrait photographer. Her feed is the perfect balance of bright colors and deeper tones, whimsy and reality, empty spaces and bustling spaces, all tied together with a dash of kitsch.
Kurt’s Very Fine Signs are very fine indeed. Hand lettering and calligraphy have taken Instagram by storm, but it’s not often that we stumble across incredible sign painters creating engaging digital content. We could watch Kurt paint letters for hours on end-- it’s so. dang. soothing. Not to mention his hand-painted signs are stunning.
Laura Berger is a Chicago-based artist who creates gorgeous paintings in nude palettes around themes of unity, humanity, and peace. Her two-dimensional minimalist style is striking, and her works make us feel hopeful for the future of humanity.
Alex Lau has an incredible eye and ability to capture stories. Plus, his magic editing touch creates a beautifully cohesive feed despite the diversity of subjects he photographs. You’ll find behind-the-scenes shots of Bon Appetit Magazine photoshoots next to photos of powerlifting gyms followed by amazing snaps of his grandmother. Alex can photograph quite literally anything on the face of the earth and it will become art.
Rupi has been called one of the greatest voices of her (and our) generation. Rupi is the 24 year old poetess and spoken word artist behind the book Milk and Honey. But her work lives just as much online as it does offline-- in our age of shareable content, short, evocative, and honest poems are spreading like wildfire across the internet. Thanks to this, Rupi has built somewhat of a tribe on Instagram, where she shares poems new and old, spoken word clips, and beautiful photos with simple one liner captions that are poems in themselves.
