Five female visual artists to follow right now

Subversive, groundbreaking and in high demand.

[I]nstagram has presented a new, (somewhat) democratic route into the art world. Galleries, typically owned and operated by the elite, are struggling to keep up with a new wave of visual artists amassing dedicated followings of new age art fans finding their visual fix online. And women are leading the way.

When translated to a gallery space, these artists show their work has scale and an immersive quality not immediately associated with a six-inch screen. But however it is consumed, the work is subversive, original and in high demand. See five of our favourites below.
