Shoplifter

Shoplifter, aka Hrafnhildur Arnardottir is an artist from Iceland who works and explores the use and symbolic nature of hair. Vanity in a comical, silly, romantic, beautiful way is the main theme of her art. Her artwork makes me think and sheds light on how we use our hair as an essential feature to decorate and beautify ourselves, as well as our horses and pets (though they could care less about it).

Sakir Gökçebag

These photo projects by Turkish artist Sakir Gökçebag are fantastic! He skillfully arranges and manipulates fruit into these visually dynamic geometric shapes and patterns. My favorite are his apple pieces but his other fruits are equally great. His other works include installations using umbrellas, toilet paper, shoes and various other materials. My horse and I would love to go to one of his exhibits.

Hand painted figurines by The Good Machinery

Admiring Italy based The Good Machinery‘s Strange Planet series of imaginatively hand painted animal figurines – looking at the little treasures simply cheer and brighten my day.
The designs play with shapes and colors including polka dots, neon, golden, striped and my favorite, the black ombré horse with a bright neon pink muzzle… or maybe the pink horse with the golden legs?

Anna-Wili Highfield

Anna-Wili is a Sydney-based artist that primarily uses archival cotton paper and copper pipes in her artwork. The paper is painted, cut and sewn into forms. The copper pipes are bent into contour drawing-like figures. Her sculptures consist of a variety of different animals and have quite a whimsical feel.
