Fusing together different art forms, Cody Choi is a contemporary photographer and choreographer who is best known for his portraits of dancers. Cody’s multidisciplinary approach shines through in the quality of his work, in which he expertly captures the movement and grace of his subjects. A graduate of dance himself, he claims to move and breathe with the dancers, following the movement of everything from their bodies to the draping of their clothes and hair. Having shot for big brands and publications including Samsung and Time Out, this is one photographer to watch.

Get to know one of the most exciting artists on the conceptual art scene today, Rebecca Folkstone. Using a mixture of typography and neon light sculpture, these bright pieces ironically convey some of the darker sides of human nature, dealing with love, money and our position within modern society. We love the contrast of the neon text that stands out against the darker backdrop, as well as the interplay between the longer quotes that make up the background and the short, impactful phrases highlighted in neon.

Looking for landscape photography with a difference? Tommy Clarke adopts a unique perspective when looking at the natural world, shooting his photographs from a few thousand feet in the air as he hangs from the side of a helicopter. The resulting effect is visually fascinating, as the scenes below appear different from this unfamiliar viewpoint. Coastlines and images of people below become lines and dots of colour, making his photography almost abstract in nature.

With an eclectic approach to her prints, Kristjana S Williams is an Icelandic artist who also happens to be one of our top five most viewed on the website. Her artwork is an interesting juxtaposition of fabulous creatures from the animal kingdom against the backdrop of urban landscapes. It’s easy to lose yourself in these fantastical creations, which have a surreal and dreamlike quality to them.
