Theo Jansen - makes beautiful kinetic sculptures that moves along the beach when it's windy.
Raquel van Haver - explores her own heritage using unconventional materials like burlap, tar, hair and ash.

Chris Berens https://www.instagram.com/chris.berens/
From Hi-Fructose - Berens has a unique painting technique that lends his work a soft focus, as if watching the fantastical world he depicts through a distorted lens. The artist combines age-old glazing techniques inspired by the Renaissance masters with layers of emulsion, plastic sheets one to three inches thick, and paper. The result is a quilted-looking texture that evokes the sensation of seeing his work through uneven layers of glass.
