Purp Alert | July 2017
Welcome to the Purp Alert. A monthly edit of fascinating finds I discover on the internet. I'll be highlighting creatives in all fields that inspire and challenge me to get better at my craft.
Barkley Hendricks is a contemporary painter best known for his beautiful portraits of black people and culture. I sadly am just learning about his work because of his passing a few months ago. Since discovering him his empowering messages and his complexity of his body of work has truly inspired me. You can learn more about his work here.
Based in Madrid, Coco Davez paints minimal portraits of iconic figures in different primary hues. the simplicity of her painting wows me every time, and dream of having a beautiful studio space like hers. You can check out more of her work on her Instagram.
Screaming confidence, style, and quirky fun, Miranda Makaroff is becoming one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram. Born in Barcelona, Miranda is a Painter, Fashion Designer, DJ, and actor. I fell in love with her hyper-colorful outfits, and the pure guts to be completely herself in all mediums. You must check out her Instagram and clothing line.
