Guy Hepner is excited to introduce an early preview of our newest collaboration with the TAX collection, a creative collective that revolutionizes the relationship between producer and consumer. These new artists are set apart by their ability to influence through social media and make art as accessible as possible. They not only use their canvas a platform for storytelling, but also their Instagram accounts.

“The main inspirations I’ve been taking from are interiors that are familiar to me. I have a really deep connection with spaces and the way that humans interact inside a home,” he explains, adding “The figures are meant to embody the viewer and stand as something we can see in all of us.”

Ben Evans uses his art as a way to expose and normalize what people do behind closed doors. His illustrations feature satirical contrasts, such as a man stuffing his face with food whilst laying on a treadmill with the caption “fitspo.” He often draws people smoking weed or with ungroomed body hair- all things many normal people have and do but pretend otherwise. His Instagram handle name “benisright” reflects his take on society. He is most definitely right that everyone has at least one ‘bad’ habit that they prefer to keep behind closed doors.
