This pink-haired snake-owning artist is so underrated! Most of her work are commissions and her videos take you through her journey of creating them. A lot of her art style is combining realistic portraits with crazy colours which are always fun to watch!

You’ve probably seen this gal on your FYP. SheΒ creates mini sculptures on keyboards which are usually food, animals or just about any cute object. Some of the pieces are out of this world and look deliciously cute, not to mention, mesmerising to watch.

This artist has a unique style where she creates her videos showcasing her art but also speaks about history and activism. Her preferred method is paints and the designs she creates have hints of a Japanese style, as she’s Japanese American! Watching her vids will not only give you great satisfaction, due to her talent, but you might learn something new too!
