What: The Paris-based artist who has contributed to Vogue Australia and Kinfolk.

Why follow it: Forest’s line and charcoal drawings are so pleasing to the (trained or untrained) eye – and it’s all thanks to their simplicity and how perfectly uncomplicated they appear. Monochrome lovers, too, will definitely dig this feed.

What: A showcase of Miami-based artist Danielle Romero’s abstract art, which are created for Flora + Form studio, a multi-disciplinary outfit she set up that focuses on creating paintings and ceramics.

Why follow it: For aesthetically pleasing art that immediately gives us “zen” vibes. While Romero’s work seems deceptively simple, the beauty of her pieces lie in the organic form of the shapes she paints and the earthy, raw tones she uses consistently.

What: Singaporean Robin Lam’s moody, surrealist feed, which commonly features (headless and faceless) shots of him.

Why follow it: Because real creativity should be rewarded – and you won’t find any cheesy OOTD or travel shots here. Rather, Lam’s feed evokes a disquieting sense of emptiness, because it typically only features one lone figure in the frame.
