Last week, hundreds of international artists gathered to exhibit their work at The Armory Show in New York, which was held for the first time at its new home in the Javits Center. Filled to the brim with endless inspiration, it was a feast for the eyes. So what were some of this year’s standouts? We caught up with FREDERIC design editor Hudson Moore to find out.

At first, I was struck by the colors of this painting. And then, I think it begged the question: How many people does it take to light a candle?

I’d describe this painting as Hieronymus Bosch meets Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. A vision!

With a name like Pousette-Dart, how could you not make chic-as-hell art?

I am half of the universe by Jordan Nassar
I am obsessed with Jordan’s hand-embroidered work. Obsessed. Anything he creates is magic.
