Are you a creative that has grown frustrated with the roadblocks that gatekeepers have thrown up in your path?
It was only a matter of time before the internet figured out a way to circumvent this, as Behance has given artists a platform to showcase their work to anyone who might be interested in it.
Even Chase Rubin has gotten in on the action, posting a few galleries of photography in a bid to gather interest for his new favorite hobby.
Wondering who the best artists are on this platform these days? This post will show them off to you and the rest of the internet.
1) Andrey Pryvalov
A game designer and illustrator from the Ukraine, Andrey Pryvalov leapt on an announcement made by Apple upon the release of its new version of its operating system, iOS 10.
One of the features coming in the new release is the use of stickers in iMessage. These are graphics that users can upload from various sources to express themselves in an unprecedented way.
Andrey has contributed to this superior form of emoji by releasing new illustrations of The Little Fox, who was the main character in a recent mobile game that his studio released in the past year.
Featuring sharp graphics of this adorable character, we think this pack will become a favorite among frequent users of this Apple app.
2) Matt Rockefeller
The internet is taking over more aspects of our lives, and as Matt Rockefeller shows us, not even the cartoons we used to watch on Saturday morning are safe.
Matt has put up numerous panels from Catalist Universe up on Behance, which is a web comic featuring cats in a world where they are the dominant species.
The most recent episode has our feline overlords enjoying a variety show at a castle, where the entertainment is hopping and the wine is flowing.
The rich detail of Matt’s animation leads us to believe that he will have a long and fruitful career doing what he loves the most.
3) Kim Høltermand
Kim hails from Copenhagen, Denmark, and she has caught our interest due to her exceptional eye for urban photography. Her home is filled with plenty of postmodern structures to go along with the traditional architecture that can be found in the historical center.
In her most recent album Architectural Dreaming, she has captured many of the otherworldly buildings that architects in this part of Europe have put up over the past few decades.
From irregularly shaped buildings that look spectacular despite their lack of symmetry, to curvy structures that wouldn’t look out of place in a sci-fi film, we have to say that Kim has us looking forward to our upcoming trip to Denmark.
4) Mike Campau
If you are a sucker for pop art, then we think that you will dig Mike Campau’s latest album. He has taken pictures of various things that Generation X grew up with in the eighties and nineties, set against a background illuminated by fuchsia, green, and blue lights.
From Rubik’s cubes to cassette tapes, Atari video game systems to touch-tone phones, it is a world that will look completely foreign to millennials.
This makes this photographic exhibit all the more fascinating, as the latter generation is slowly becoming the dominant demographic force in our society.
