Bright Young Things
Fresh Perspectives & Rising Stars 

After education impacted by the pandemic and a season of isolation and suffering, young artists within the UK are responding with engaging works bursting with life. This revival following restriction has led to the emergence of “bright young things”—artists providing glimmers of hope and exuberance, daring to experiment with the mundane. A catchphrase originally coined in the decadent 1920s, Bright Young Things is a fitting title, one hundred years later, to catalogue the vibrant creative endeavours of rising stars like Mary Bowen, Finn Fallowfield, Ben Johnston, Magda Michalak, and Katherine Benson. These five artists, spanning the mediums of painting and sculpture, are the voice of a new generation.
