Top 100 Art Doll Creators of 2019 on Instagram

As the Editor-in-Chief of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, I have had the pleasure of working with many incredible Art Doll creators for almost 7 years now – for the magazine itself, our web blog, our curated exhibitions, the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize, and of course, sharing their work across our 980,000+ strong social media network.

So as we kick off the new year and new decade, I wanted to share with you a list of artists whom I believe are among the greatest living and working art doll creators of 2019. This is not an exhaustive list by any means, and is not in any particular order, however as you will see the works speak for themselves. You may note that there are some art doll creators who are conspicuously missing, this is because I have not included artists with a minimal or no Instagram presence [my little tip for all artists: showing beautiful photographs of completed works on Instagram, rather than just works in progress, is very important], because as you will see all the artists mentioned below are linked to their Instagram accounts, so you can quickly and easily follow them too!

If you are an art doll creator, or know one that you feel should be included in our next list, please comment below. I am always in search of exciting new creatives!

Finally, the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize has a Yasha Young Sculpture Award Category, which Art Dolls can be entered into, to ensure all the amazing emerging and leading Art Doll sculptors around the world get the recognition they deserve – entries for this year’s Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize, in all Award categories are now open! I can’t wait to see your entries.

Please note we have not included creatures in this list, only human/humanoid dolls.

Вот она, моя красавица Мун (Moon) , вдохнавлял на создание костюма Тибет, но это мое прочтение ,так как женский тибетский костюм очень многогранен, не было задачи повторить, лишь создать образ. И если Парадиз абсолютно неземное создание, то Мун ее антипод -ее красота пропитана древним духом земли)) #фарфороваябжд #bjddolls #collectiondolls #bjddoll #bjdphoto #artdollmaker #prilaga #artdollbjd #фарфоровая_кукла #porcelainbjd #skvorka_dolls #фарфороваякукла #artdolls #bjdstagram #bjdinstagram #bjdphotography #bjd #кукла #artdoll #artdollsculpture #collectiondoll #instabjd #bjdoll #bjds #фарфоровая #фарфороваяшарнирка #abjd

Perhaps I sculpt the undead to achieve ever so briefly their immortality. Perhaps I sculpt the undead in hopes that I might taste the weightlessness of that sweet sleep. Perhaps I am drawn to the crimson flash on the polished tombstones of their teeth, the glow of the moon in the pale of their cheek. Perhaps people before me have done such a damn good job in portraying them that I can only imitate them in 10 inch form in a frenzied dance between imitation and veneration. Or maybe vampires are just cool as hell and some of us never outgrew that dream of the 90's in which we're all just greasy haired, velvet-draped, Parliament cigarette scented, ruffle-blouse wearing, blood-sucking monsters. Yeah that's probably it. {Custom sculpt, NFS, handsculpted/hand stitched reproduction of Lucy Westenra from Francis Ford Copolla's Dracula, incomparable original costume design by Eiko Ishioka, google it y’all}

Preorder for these fantastic (and somewhat dark) creatures is now open! As I said earlier, it will now continue indefinitely, however, I won't be able to make more than 15 dolls a month, probably. With this in mind, the time to complete and ship the preordered dolls is increased to two months (also, black resin is harder to process than the regular one). As usual, I'll give priority to fully paid orders and try to ship dolls as fast as possible. There is one main new feature (in addition to black resin) – hands with movable fingers of original design. They now don't require stringing or sophisticated mechanics and should work fine for a long time. I've been testing this system for a month and it's working nicely – no breakages or sloppiness appeared. What else? You can now choose colors of transparent parts, if you're not satisfied with a default one. For example, the Crystalline girl will come with red crystals and eyes by default, but if you have another idea for the color – just let me know during ordering process. As usual, you can place orders at my website – www.nihilum.es, or DM me on Instagram. Free express shipping for orders with dolls, tracked airmail for accessories only. Please note that there are only about five or six Antlers faceplates available this time, after which this character will be discontinued. #doll #bjd #bjddoll #balljointeddoll #ooak #oneofakind #resin #polyurethane #art #craft #plastic #contemporaryart #dollsofinstagram #artdoll #faceless #creature #nihilum_dolls #nihilumdolls #preorder

🔸️ Друзья Пипа. 🔸️Вчера и сегодня мы просмотрели около 50 аккаунтов. Краткий разбор делала Элина, она занимается фотографией больше десяти лет, с 2006 года участвовала в фотоконкурсах, провела две персональные фотовыставки, планируется ещё в скором будущем. Ответили в личном сообщении, но заметили общие, часто повторяющиеся ошибки, которые легко избежать. А, чтобы снимать красивые картинки, на это, конечно, надо учиться, постоянно развивать чувство композиции и стиля, смотреть примеры фотохудожников. 🔸️ Ошибки при съемке кукол и мишек: ▪Глубокие, темные тени на лицах кукол. (Желательно использовать отражатель). ▪Неправильная съёмка против света. ( Свет из окна должен быть боковым). ▪Нежелательная съёмка при искусственном свете, который дает желтизну, искажает цвет, нет объема.( Лучше фотографировать при естественном, дневном освещении или же использовать проф.освещение). ▪Не нужно использовать пестрый, разноцветный фон, обои. Большое количество на фото ярких, лишних, не по теме предметов, которые только отвлекают от главного объекта.( Лучше использовать однотонный, нейтральный, например, светло-серый фон. Это может быть большой цветной картон). Черный и чисто белый фон, без опыта работы, очень сложны при фотографировании. ▪Следить за композицией, стараться правильно закомпоновать объект в квадрат инстаграма и не обрезать части тела. Выравнивать линию горизонта. Оставлять пространство и воздух на фото, чтобы куклам и мишкам не было тесно:) * ___________ Sold. * #oplakanska_pip * *

Я ПРИДУ К ТЕБЕ, ПОКА ТЫ СПИШЬ… Моя самая странная коллекция на сегодняшний день. Но аж зубы скрипели, как хотелось сделать их именно такими, с одним глазиком, понимая все последствия:). Не стала раскидывать на несколько постов, все три мои девочки в одном, листайте. Так как в наших рядах завелась зубная фея, то пришлось и остальным присвоить это почетное звание. Поэтому, по-порядку, зубная фея, фея шороха и фея темноты (но я их зову просто шорох и темнота😉). Девочки небольшие, 27 см, тело шарнирное в смешанной технике. Могут стоять самостоятельно, но лучше все же с подставкой. Одежда вся съемная. Увидеть можно будет в Москве с 7-10 марта в рамках выставки #весеннийбалкукол на #тишинка Девочки все при домах #stepanida_spb #авторскаякукла #коллекционнаякукла #циклоп #artdoll #collectiondoll #cyclops

Продолжаю свои мифы и легенды. Женщина –Олень Дух в различных формах индейской мифологии западной части Соединенных Штатов Америки. Которая в первую очередь ассоциируется с плодородием и любовью. Хотя в основном она выступает как доброжелательный дух, она так же иногда заманивает мужчин к смерти. Женщиной –Олень может стать и обычная индейская девушка- чаще всего в наказание за проступки,как свои так и своих братьев. Олений народ может забрать у людей девушку,если племя убивают слишком много самок –оленей, что бы именно она продолжила олений род. Однако бывает так что Женщина Олень сама подбирает брошенного или потерянного человеческого ребенка и выкармливает и растит его вместе со своими детьми оленятами. А потом когда приходит его время отпускает его к людям. Но только что бы вновь стать настоящим человеком и навсегда остаться со своим племенем, воспитанник Оленихи должен провести в селении ровно 4 дня в полном одиночестве и ни кто все это время не должен видеть его. Но если хоть кто то увидит его то он сразу обернется Оленем и убежит в лес, что бы до конца жизни остаться одним из Оленьего Народа.

Русский ниже./The new photoshoot of Rowena, art BJD. For a long time I wanted to take photos that fully reflect the concept of this doll. Rowena is the personification of freedom and upland. Especially for the photoshoot, I created a cage for maximum realism of what is happening and immersing the viewer in the atmosphere. The first photos show the humility and humbleness of the girl-bird, her drama, the longing and the loneliness of confinement. Ровена, авторская шарнирная кукла в новой фотосессии. Уже давно я хотела сделать снимки, полноценно отражающие концепцию этой куклы. Ровена является олицетворением свободы и возвышенности. Специально для фотосессии, мною была создана клетка, для максимальной реалистичности происходящего и погружения зрителя в атмосферу. Первые фотографии демонстрируют покорность и смирение девушки-птицы, ее внутреннюю драму, тоску и одиночество заключения. Большое спасибо фотографу @niko_porta, благодаря твоим золотым рукам снимки вышли именно такими, как я задумывала!

|Alice in Underland, Chapter 5, Queen of Hearts| Maybe you knew me from the side of ‘delicate’, ‘elegant’ and ‘fashion’, but if you have seen my Alice in Underland series made between 2010-2012, you will know I am more than that. To me, ‘delicate’ is the base, what more important are creativity and thoughts behind the surface. . In late 2010, I was inspired by a picture of Venus flytrap. I thought I could make heart-shaped flytraps for a headless queen of hearts. Actually, I named my first porcelain doll ‘Venus’ not directly after the Goddess or the planet ‘Venus’, but after the Venus flytrap. Then in order to match the flytrap, I decided to make a green gown for the queen. Having seen so many RED ‘red queen’, I need to break the rules if I want to impress the audience. . However, beyond all my expectations, it took me 8 years to achieve this concept. As an untrained self-taught artist, I needed to overcome many difficulties both on the designs and on the technics, challenging myself to do things that no one had thought and done before. During that time, I was treated like an underdog by a fellow doll maker and was not supported by my family, so I was hoping to finish this piece to prove myself. Every time I thought how it looks like when the whole chapter finished, it felt so exciting that my heart almost lost a beat. However, this kind of hope eventually became heavy stresses, which made me disappointed and anxious. I was fearing I could not make it work, fearing all the years of hard working was just a 24-hour long topic on the social media, fearing my life wouldn’t change at all. . Luckily, I got support from friends really like me, and was appreciated by the expert collectors. And I finally understood it was not the only work of mine. Finished it is not an end, but a new beginning. Begin to let you know, beside those delicate fashion dolls, what’s truly I can offer. Thank you for reading. (Everything in this photo was designed and made by me. . . #porcelaindoll #porcelainbjd #AliceinUnderland #Alice #bjd #doll #dollstagram #dolls #artdoll #artbjd #fashiondoll #aliceinwonderland #ooakdoll #art #surrealism

🇺🇸 We waited a long time for this moment and went to this decision for many years. Since 2014 we have been creating wigs for our numerous customers around the world. We made an average of 400 wigs per year. I’m sorry, but this year our life has changed a lot, we moved to the USA, and we can’t continue more work to order. We have changed a lot as artists, thanks to you we have become better and developed our skills. And now we want to devote our life to creating our new small dolls. We will finish all the old wig and doll orders for this year and maybe we will only sell ready-made wigs on our site in future. But you can still order wigs from us for our new dolls. We are very grateful to everyone who has been our friends and customers all these years, it was really beautiful time. Thank you for your support and kind understanding. ❤️❤️❤️ – 🇷🇺 Это решение зрело долгие годы и наконец мы уверены, что сможем его осуществить, прекратив работать на заказ. На это была нужна сила воли, потому что мы очень любим наших заказчиков и нам очень тяжело говорить нет. Но все больше и больше мастеров отказываются от работы на заказ, уделяя все время собственным проектам. – С 2014 года мы без остановки работали на международном рынке, каждый год увеличивая количество изготовленных париков, за это время было сделано 2500 заказов, это очень много. Благодаря этой работе мы получили бесценный опыт организации собственного бизнеса, который обеспечивал нас и позволял нам развивать свои скиллы, делая нас успешнее и сильнее. ☺️ – В США у нас началась новая жизнь и настало время открыть новое для нас творчество, поэтому мы больше не будем принимать заказы на парики, и параллельно с завершением всех старых дел посвятим себя созданию маленьких авторских кукол, воплощая свои миры, идеи и персонажей. 💝 #amadizbeauty #bjdwig #fashiondoll #handmadedolls #dollmaking #bjdmaking #handmade #dollphoto #bjd #doll #bjdartist #balljointeddoll #fineart #bjdart #dollphotography #dollstagram #instadoll #bjdinstagram

More photos of sterling silver art doll Artemis. For some reason, I’ve always wanted to make a doll with deer antler. I’ve always been drawn to deer… I would assume it might be my spiritual animal. Their eyes are so innocent and pure with lots of curiosity. I’m glad I achieve my goal and I’m happy with her. I also feel extremely fortunate that the beauty of Florida is above what I have imagined. Once I said to my husband,” You’d forget how messy rest of the world is when you are in Florida.” . . . . . . . . #artdoll #bjd #dollstagram #bjdstagram #artemis #goddess #sterlingsilver #waxcarving #handcraftdoll #enameling #tourmaline #reticulatedquartz #moonstone #deerantler #floridasprings #球体関節人形 #silverdoll #metaldoll #stonesetting #deer #tattoodoll #tattoo #beautifulbizarre

Это новая шинель, кстати- не та, которую я выкладывала раньше. Что изменилось: сделала воротник и карманы по-человечески, т.е. двухслойными (изначально я не хотела так делать, т.к. думала что будет слишком толсто для моего масштаба. Но оказалось вполне приемлимо), оформила петли- пробовала обшить, оказалось в принципе не сложно, но выглядело УГ. В итоге просто пропитала текстильным клеем. Немножно удлинила полы. #doll #artdoll #dollart #art #artwork #resin #handcraft #toy #toydesign #toycreation #collectiontoys #collectionfigure #blond #blondie #man #male #boy #war #coat #postapocalypce #bjd #portrait #realistic #realism #sculpt #sculpture #sculpting #modelling #bjd #human #figure

1.1 ⠀ Очередные семейные каникулы решили мы провести в гостях у родителей, живущих в соседней области. ⠀ Вышло так, что мы поехали другой дорогой, пролегавшей через главное место моего детства – маленькое село в котором давным-давно жила моя бабушка. – ⠀ Мы никогда не ездим этим маршрутом, дорога там как в книгах русских классиков. «И угораздило же!», ворчала я, выдернутая из сладкой дремоты и огорчённая, что не проконтролировала нужный поворот. – ⠀ В окне автомобиля мелькали знакомые, хоть и весьма постаревшие дома, некоторые совсем опустевшие сиротливо прижимались к ещё обитаемым в надежде получить хоть немного тепла и заботы. ⠀ Вот ремонтная станция где работала бабушка, вот березняк, нынче совсем заросший, в котором мы собирали самую сладкую землянику. – ⠀ Наш путь следовал по основной дороге, в сторону от которой уходила улица, ведущая к бабушкиному дому. В этот момент мне во что бы то ни стало захотелось приехать сюда, пройти вновь тайными тропинками по всем заветным местам, вернуться в свой маленький огромный сказочный мир, существовавший, пока существовало мое детство. – ⠀ Уже на следующий день, под предлогом поездки на родник, мне удалось смыться из дома, пока муж был поглощён заслуженным сном, а дети – столяркой деда. Понятное дело, у них был план – стащить что-то интересное. А у меня был план вернуться на несколько часов в мир моего детства… #ищи_гения

Итак, моя третья малышка.💗 Пожалуй, самая скромная из троих. В белоснежном платье и с таким же нежным цветом волос. Моим девочкам очень хорошо всем вместе, рядышком, а потому радости, конечно, не было предела, когда они разом отправились в новый дом!💗💗💗 На голове у куклы – веночек из шелковых цветов и лент. Что вам сказать, хлопотное это дело – создавать цветы из шелка! 😱 Но мне понравилось. Даже очень. Так что продолжение, несомненно, будет…

Проверим одну теорию 🤔 может вы мне и поможете 🙄 Обычно по хештегам ко мне приходит довольно много гостей, но вот на все мои публикации с обнаженной девой приходит буквально 2-3 человека. Ни в рекомендованных ни по хештегам инстаграм вообще не показывает эту куклу 🤪 От слова совсем! Так что все лайки, комментарии, сохранения и репосты – это только ваша заслуга, мои дорогие подписчики 😘 Благодарю вас от всей души за каждый лайк и репост – только так и увидели меня другие люди При всём при этом хитрый инстаграм рассказывал об этих публикациях, что они популярнее на 95%, чем предыдущие и надо бы их продвигать 😆 Интересно, кому бы он показывал посты, если сам прячет 🤔 В общем по-прежнему вся надежда только на вас – нажимайте на самолетик под публикацией и делитесь у себя в сторис или в ленте прекрасной девой на ветру ❤ Вчера до ночи клеила стразы сваровски. Увы, ни фото ни видео не передает всей красоты, но, может позже в сторис покажу платье поближе С любовью и уважением, ваша @elenamisiuna

      I would have appreciated this article if it had been called Beautiful Bizarre’s Top 100 picks of 2019. Art is a highly subjective thing, and this publication has an aesthetic that influenced this list. I can think of 100+ other doll artists deserving of being called one of the best of our time, all with different styles that may not suit this publication.

      One of the best things about the Doll Art community on Instagram is that there is no hierarchy. People are encouraged to focus on their own work and not compare themselves to others.

      Ranking systems don’t belong in art. You could have posted this article without a numbering system. You can do better than this.

    Hi Danijela!
    Beautiful top 100. My favorite artists are all there.
    I also make dolls! For two years now I have used porcelain, the eight years before I used polymer clay..
    Come to meet me. It’s important for us artists to make themselves known. Thank you for your work!

    Wow, some of these are great and I follow them, but some of these look so similar and repetitive, while others aren’t even made from scratch or carved — they’re just repaints or out of a mold (one’s even just a wig-maker). Might I suggest you have a look at the custom Blythes — *there’s* actual hardcore carving and painting — ooak works, not just repaints from a mold. A couple of my all time favorites are

    It’s great to see a lot of artists that i know in the list. At first i thought that this is only for doll makers, but i see a lot of just owners, so i decided to try my chances too.
    I’m interesting in dark art, dark fashion and cyberpunk styles and that what i’m try to show through my dolls.

    This list is confusing.

    Some of the artists chosen do beautiful customization and faceup work but they do not make actual dolls. The dolls shown as “their doll work” are using dolls from makers that are not credited here – from Bratz to Fairyland to DLace. I think there are two people listed that just take really nice photos but don’t make dolls or customize them themselves.

    Making dolls, customizing someone else’s dolls and taking photos of dolls are three different skills. If you want to show off the work of art doll customizers, or doll photographers, they should have their own list to make room in a top 100 art doll creators for…people who make dolls.
