Which Artists Made Forbes’ 30 Under 30 List?
30 under 30 lists tend to inspire a fair amount of debate, eye rolling, and poorly-cloaked jealousy, and we’re sure this year’s Forbes 30 Under 30 in Art & Style list will be no different. But selected by the infamous Jeffrey Deitch, homeware designer Jonathan Adler, and fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi, this year’s list is surprisingly diverse and features an unprecedented number of artists. While some names are already fairly ubiquitous, there are a few you may want to Google.
If Deitch (who we’re assuming had the strongest pull in the visual art selections) is to be believed, you can look forward to seeing a lot more of painter Kour Pour, video artist Jacolby Satterwhite, street artist Vhils, sculptor and photographer Stewart Uoo, collage artist Borna Sammak, digital artist Tabor Robak, painter Jamian Juliano-Villani, ceramicist Nate Mell, street artist Gaia, street artist and painter Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, photographer Charlie Engman, photographer Sara Cwynar, and sculptor Catharine Ahearn. Did you get all that?
To break it down, 13 of the 30 individuals picked are visual artists. Fashion designers, graphic designers, and fashion bloggers comprised the other two-thirds of the list, with fashion designer Misha Nonoo (also the wife of Paddle8 cofounder Alexander Gilkes) and jewelry designer Alison Chemla (sister of ArtBinder founder Alexandra Chemla) each snagging a spot.
In keeping with the growing street art zeitgeist, three of the 13 artists selected work at least partially with the street as canvas.
For comparisons sake, last year’s list (selected by Deitch, Mizrahi, and Peter Brant) featured Artsy CEO Carter Cleveland, furniture designing duo the Haas Brothers, painter and Girls star Jemima Kirke, Oscar Murillo, and Lucien Smith.
