The work of Laura Callaghan is arresting for a number of reasons. Not only is her style visually striking with its focus on a slew of details as well as her use of bright pastels and beautiful women, the artworks also depict important social meanings many can relate to -- or at the very least acknowledge.

Focusing specifically on modern girls, Laura Callaghan's artworks deal with the idea of the narcissism of today through social media, selfies and more. Although the scenes are all about the everyday, there is something very hyper realistic about the themes as well. Through her very particular style, Laura Callaghan encourages people to think about their own actions. The Irish artist, who lives in London, has done work for Urban Outfitters, Nylon Magazine and MTV
