Who to Follow

Jordy van den Nieuwendijk

Jordy van den Nieuwendijk is running around New York ahead of his Maan exhibition which opens on Saturday at the Moiety Gallery. As always his Instagram feed is a lovely little diary of what he’s up to.

Annu Kilpeläinen

Annu Kilpeläinen’s Instagram feed is a relentless blast of colour, along with some lovely updates of her recent works including this ace cover for Yen magazine.

Oliver Jeffers / Duke Riley Studio

One crazy, beautiful video of pigeons flying around with LED lights strapped to them from Oliver Jeffers. The snapshot was taken from a preview of Duke Riley’s performance piece, Fly By Night.

Charlotte Trounce

Taking a break from her usual illustrative updates, Charlotte Trounce seems to be on a little art-culture trip around Kyoto. It’s always nice to see a part of the world through the eyes of a creative, even if it does make ugly cry with holiday envy.

Joan Cornellà

Getting yourself banned on Facebook is pretty frustrating, but even more so when you have 3.7 million followers. This is exactly what happened to Joan Cornellà this week. Luckily you can still get your crude comic fix on Twitter.
