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.
A self-taught artist, Sage Barnes has only learned to create from his own ideas, which is exactly what sets him apart. He has found a unique combination of abstract, realistic, and street art techniques, which are often kept separate. Many of his works feature a very realistic bodice, with an explosion of colors in place of ahead, painted against a graffiti-like wall. His Instagram bio reads “college dropout,” potentially as a way to share with people that there is no clear cut path to success. He also uses his Instagram as a form of connection with his followers. Rather than just posting an artwork with its title, he will add a meaningful quote or share the story behind a work.
