    Meh. There are WAY more than 7 artists I`ve never heard of...

    A friend of mine has done paintings very similar to Erin Hansen`s. Same subject matter, same style and (arguably) ever bit as good or better. You`ve never heard of my friend. He`s not a professional artist... Hmm, I take that back. He designs websites. Like a graphic designer? So yeah, he`s an artist, but you`ve never heard of him.

    Jemima Kirke is one of the main characters on Girls so I wouldn`t say no one has ever heard of her

    Hey ...I don`t if that is complaint or not? ? There are literally thousands of artist out there we all have never heard, but today I picked 7 That I have never seen their work and posted it. If I get good numbers and comments on this post...then I will do more of them. If not, I tried something new.

    Here is an idea. Why not take 5 minutes, snap some pics of your friends work, send them to me in an email with some written info about him and I`ll make a post on I-A-B about him for the whole world to see. I`ll even give you credit for the submission. If you like the idea...then do it. It will be fun and I am sure when you give him the URL to the post, he will be very happy as well.

    I am not certain, but I do think that I have heard of Erik Olsen before. The name just sounds so familar.

    I like most all of them except Jemima Kirke`s. Her`s look very amateurish in comparison.

    I really like this Erin Hanson. I always admire people who can use "wrong" colours to create an image that is somehow right.

    50% of them are nice. The others have a clear reason why no one know`s who they are :p Just because no one els has made something that look`s like the thing you maid, means it`s art.

    There are famous artists with work that`s crap, but they give it a good story and it`s glorified. It`s title should be MORE then enough. If your art needs a explanation before it is good, it`s NOT art.

    Everyone is a critic, eh? These are all fine but I`d give the nod to Erin Hanson`s work. And yes, I do have a degree in Fine Art.

    A friend of mine from North East who currently resides in London is a really good artist (in my opinion). Check her out: J S Lown
