The illustrators who’ll kick off the 2020s in style

By Digital Arts Staff | on January 15, 2020ShareShare

No, Banksy isn’t one of these best up-and-coming illustrators.

It’s that time again, when creative platforms are predicting the big trends and names for the year ahead, whether in the field of colour, art, design or stock photography.

Nothing unusual there, considering we’re halfway through January, but there is a twist this year considering 2020 is the start of a new decade, giving matters a different sort of weight.

Each year we ask top creative agencies to nominate the best up-and-coming illustrators who’ll be defining how all your favourite reads and brands ‘sing’ visually, choices which this year challenge the very notion of an illustrator is and can be.

Instead of just 2D artistry, the 14 illustrators below also work in disparate fields as sculpture, animation, plasticine and fine art. It seems the changing times mean changing ways to draw a viewer in, and the 2020s will see a need for illustration students and newcomers to adapt their skillset for whatever the occasion.

The agencies this time round include Heart – who exclusively announce a brand new signing below for Digital Arts – alongside JSRCentral IllustrationColageneGrand MatterFolio Art, and Jelly. Read the explanation behind their choices whilst enjoying some phenomenal artwork, handpicked by the agencies as the most representative and exciting of their portfolios.

Folio Art: Peter Henderson

Peter Henderson’s simple yet undeniably charming work would set him apart from the crowd of young artists and illustrators, even if his multiple awards did not. Specialising in vector images and animation, Peter counts travel, motion and exploration among his many inspirations.
