From a risk-taking swimwear entrepreneur to a globe-trotting painter who’s still in high school to a social media influencer with more than 25 million followers, the 2017 Forbes Art & Style 30 Under 30 list highlights young superstars across the fine arts, commercial design and fashion worlds. Our featured pick this year: Candice Galek, 29, a former model and founder of swimwear site Bikini Luxe. In March 2016, Galek posted photos of models wearing her flesh-baring products on staid professional networking site LinkedIn. “Is this appropriate for LinkedIn?” she asked, inviting a deluge of comments and great exposure for her brand. Bikini Luxe is aiming for revenue of $5 million in 2017.

Among the dozen-plus entrepreneurs on our list: Lingerie designer Morgan Curtis, 29, whose undergarment brand, Morgan Lane, sells at European department stores like Harrods and Bon Marche, fashion designer Marieclaire St. John, 29, of Dresshirt, whose signature item is a favorite of models Gig Hadid and Kendall Jenner, and Jake Rosenberg, 29, cofounder of Coveteur, which has grown from an online passion project that explored the coveted possessions of celebrities and style setters into an influential fashion site that produces lucrative native advertising campaigns for luxury brands including Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Veuve Clicquot. Expected 2016 revenue: $6 million.

Two of our Under 30s are veterans of the hit ABC reality show Shark Tank, where aspiring entrepreneurs pitch their projects to a panel of hard-nosed funders. Lovepop cofounder John Wise, 29, discovered an intricate Vietnamese paper art, got a deal from the sharks, and expects 2016 revenue for his greeting card company to hit $7 million. Paige Walker, 29, cofounded Stella Valle, a line of chunky jewelry, and also landed a deal with the sharks.

One of our list’s youngest members: art collector Michael Xufu Huang, 22. He bought his first piece at age 16 and in 2014, while a sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania, he cofounded M WOODS, a modern art museum in Beijing. Huang is a constant at art fairs, galleries and artists’ studios and he sits on the board of the New Museum in New York.

Two of our picks are still in high school. At 16, Los Angeles artist Skyler Grey has a gallery in Miami and has produced commissioned pieces in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. His work riffs on cartoon figures and luxury brands; in one piece a limber Popeye and Olive Oil form the interlocking Cs in the Chanel logo. James Charles, 17, a self-taught makeup artist, is breaking gender barriers as CoverGirl’s first-ever male “ambassador,” creating social media content and modeling in a national TV commercial for the brand’s new mascara.

Another gender pioneer on the list is transgender model Peche Di, 27, a beauty queen in her native Thailand who founded Trans Models, a transgender modeling agency in New York. She also started Teadate, a dating app for the transgender community.

In the realm of fine art, where it’s tough to win acclaim before age 30, we found a surprising number of accomplished young people this year. Among the 10 artists on the list: Misha Kahn, 27, whose work is a mashup of furniture and sculpture. He has already exhibited in four major museums, including the Whitney in New York and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Painter and new media artist Rachel Rossin, 29, has shown in museums in Basel, Riga, Istanbul and Helsinki. In one of her pioneering works, gallery goers watch videos on virtual reality headsets while they move through a space hung with her paintings. Tschabalala Self, 26, whose work explores ideas of the black female body, has shown at the Studio Museum in Harlem.
