A few months of staying home is exactly what the doctor ordered for creative artists. Here are a few locals who are catching our eye.

Jorge Caceres, @jorgecaceresart

With Spanish and Italian roots, Peru-born Jorge Caceres employs vibrant colors with organic shapes to convey his stories. His interests and experiences in architecture, interior design, and traveling the world combine to fuel his inspiration for creating brilliant paintings.

Jordan Wine, @jordannwine.com

DC-based design artist Jordan Wine uses patterning to mimic natural wonders of the world. Her thought-provoking works act as beautiful inquiries into deep space in time and meditation. Her imagery can be seen in galleries and collectives around DC, in homes, and on the sides of buildings along the streets of DC.

Maggie O’Neill, @maggieoartist

In Maggie we trust—she’s a colorful woman, to say the least. Her fine artworks, classified as pop impressionistic, are lively and bright. Many of them are inspired by DC landmarks and inspiring individuals in the area. O’Neill’s design abilities also expand to fashion and interior design. Her works are available on leggings and towels, plus she co-founded a design firm (Swatchroom) specializing in commercial metropolitan spaces.

TH Gomillion, @t.h.gomillion

This dazzling artist showcases the African American experience in touching vignettes of color and undulating shapes, resulting in cascades of emotion. Look for rich colors and interesting tableaus from this promising artist.

Aziza Claudia Gibson-Hunter, @gibsonhunterstudio

Gibson-Hunter’s adept use of multiple media allow her to shine in areas like painting, printmaking, collage and sculpture. The artist’s installations are nothing short of a marvel, combining boundless creativity and color.
