by

Indie Craft Cover

 

Staff Pick

The indie craft scene lends its name to some of the freshest new artists today: Diem Chau, Marloes Duyker, William Schaff, and Patricia Waller, to name just a few. Their ideas are edgy and combine many mediums, their art is often political and satirical, and all of their work is a bold response to the homogeneity of mass production. Regardless of where you stand on the debate of art versus craft, all of the art (or craft) in Indie Craft will intrigue and excite you.
