Are you ready for the next Take Over?!
If you are a follower of our Beautiful Bizarre community, you surely love this feature as much as I do. Every month, we select one of our favourite creative minds and friends to take over Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s social media for a whole day. One full day of inspiration and creative energies – directly from the source and curated with 🖤!
In April, we handed our socials over to our great supporters and gold sponsors of the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize 2022, Artstation. What a special Tuesday it was!
In case you missed their curation on our socials, we put together the Take Over right here. Let’s delve into the world of Artstation!
ArtStation is the showcase platform for art & design, created to help artists thrive. Follow along as we highlight artists of our community and how they use the platform to become better artists, network and grow in their careers.

Geoffrey Ernault // Learning
