The Internet may have met its match in Jeanette Hayes. An artist known for paintings that cheekily deposit meme-friendly Anime characters into venerable artworks from the Northern Renaissance to de Kooning—or treat the iPhone screen as a canvas for devotional paintings—Hayes also marshals her considerable wit and remarkable store of web goodies to populate her unmissable social-media pages. Here, the artist and frequent Opening Ceremony and DIS collaborator weighs in on this year’s NADA New York art fair in the most persuasive form of language yet invented by man: gifs.

My third favorite is my good friend Michael Manning.
 
 
This isn't a biased pick because he's my friend. I'm biasedly friends with him because I like his art. He's a genius and these 3D works are psycho. They make me feel like this when I'm looking at them
 

Another work I like is by Adrian Wong.
