London-based Jessica Dance is a textile artist and model maker specializing in tactile handcrafted models and props. So, super creative basically. Her knit foods and objects are full of amazing color and texture and I want nothing more than to slip those Nikes on!

Mark Ollinger

Mark Ollinger-1-Design Crush

 

Vancouver-based Mark Ollinger truly has hidden a number of street sculptures around the world as a response to street painting (aka graffiti, which he also creates). He plays with words, their meanings, and their physical appearance, breaking each one down into a metaphorical and thought out piece of art that depends on your mind to decipher it.

Kate Hush

Kate Hush-1-Design Crush

 

I have a huge crush on neon artist Kate Hush. (That name!) During the day she fabricates neon lighting for others, but when the sun goes down she creates her own art – crazy women doing bad things inspired by men’s rights activists and their ideas of females. Conniving, manipulative forms sporting fake tears and ultra high heels showcase their wicked ways, leading you down the wrong path that might just feel right.

Courtney Mattison / Our Changing Seas Series

Courtney Mattison-1-Design Crush

 

Courtney Mattison creates amazing large-scale sculptural installations, the most impressive of which is a series of three called Our Changing Seas. The first is based on interviews conducted with marine researchers, artists, and marine environmental professionals, the second depicts a 360º transition of a healthy coral reef to a bleached one and back again, and the third explores the rapid transition corals in the tropics and subtropics are making as a result of climate change.

Angel Oloshove‘s sculpture and pottery pieces are downright dreamy in their abstractness. You can’t help but see her past experience as a toy designer in Tokyo trying to escape from the seams of each piece.
