We discovered Queenslander Joel Rea after a particularly frenzied Instagram session. Fervently scrolling through his work, it was instantaneous love. Depicting gigantic dogs, brutal oceans, and pristine glaciers; his paintings are FRICKING EPIC.

Immense, emotive and swathed in mother natures brooding intensity – these paintings deserve a Hans Zimmer soundtrack. Last Summer he featured in American magazine Art Business News as one of thirty revolutionary artists under the age of thirty – of our time. He’s an artistic badass and an absolute inspiration. Make time to watch this video.
