Buy art from the most exciting up-and-coming artists

The best thing about working at Bluethumb is finding the best new and emerging artists before they take Australia by storm. Buying art from up-and-coming artists is not just good for the budget (though that is a definite plus), it’s also a great feeling to support young artists while they work to make a name for themselves – just think of yourself as a benefactor of Australia’s fine arts scene.

We’ve been impressed by three of Bluethumb’s relative newcomers, LLael McDonald from Melbourne, Emma Ward from Rockhampton, QLD, and Agata Kobus from Melbourne. Their work showcases a range of styles, from Llael’s Jeffrey Smart and Edward Hopper influences, to Emma’s colourful watercolours in the vein of Cherry Hood, to Agata’s musical oil paintings that have touches of Salvador Dali.
