Jealous: What’s New in the Art Scene

The Jealous Curator, if you are not aware already, is a brilliant blog, which is, in the words of its creator:

“A collection of artwork that inspires and depresses me. I know it’s good when I’m left thinking damn I wish I thought of that.”

Isn’t that so true! I’m jealous of the jealous curator’s blog (such a good idea), but mostly I’m just jealous- or maybe just super inspired (a bit of both) by the awesome contemporary artists she features. I just heard about this blog today and it kind of hijacked my night. So check out the goodness here.  The following are a few of the featured artists that I am super jealous of- I mean in awe of.
