The art world reflects many of our world’s worst aspects, from the attention-hogging main players to the relentless onslaught of avarice. But despite all its flaws, there is something worth venerating. Interesting, dynamic, and honest-to-god creative figures are hardly in short supply. So please, feast your eyes on 13 of the most interesting (and if we’re being honest, most eye catching) men and women in the art world today. Young and old, well-known and up-and-coming, artistically inclined and business focused—we’ve taken a little from each camp, and are pleased to present them to you in a gold-leaf frame. Just don’t get too close—the guard is watching!
