Global online art marketplace Artsy announced its 2022 Artsy Vanguard – a prestigious list of the next big names in art, nominated by art world insiders, curators, collectors, galleries, and other artists.

This year’s carefully curated list features 19 emerging artists who are propelling contemporary art forward through their urgent, moving, original works – a few artists on the list include: Oscar yi Hou, Susan Chen, Auriea Harvey, Felipe Baeza, and Qualeasha Wood. Each of the artists honored are driving some of the most important material and conceptual themes we’re experiencing in art today, including bold figurative painting, uncanny reflections of the present, identity-driven portraiture, abstraction imbued with spirituality, and an embrace of craft techniques.

To celebrate the 2022 Artsy Vanguard, the online art marketplace has partnered with OUTFRONT Media to display their art works on a digital billboard in New York City’s Times Square (corner of West 48th Street and Broadway) through December 11 for all to experience their incredible talent.

The Artsy Vanguard artists’ achievements have been met with serious votes of confidence from the art world. Past Artsy Vanguard artists – such as Jadé Fadojutimi, Tyler Mitchell, Jordan Nassar, Derek Fordjour and more – have gone on to achieve major career milestones and numerous industry accolades, demonstrating how they have become leading figures in contemporary art since being featured on the list.
