Whirling colors smash into dangling foliage. Maya Hayuk is amazing. I recommend looking through her older work too if you aren’t familiar. She also has a book out through Upper Playground, available here.

In this small, weird corner of the US we have some huge talent thanks to MCAD (Minneapolis College of Art and Design), the Walker Art Center, and a few other magnetic poles of design.

Broad selection of works by artists over at Company of People. Really like the idea of taking collage outside of cut paper and arranging people/objects in the way that a film director (such as Fellini) would. Going into the beyond
