Below you’ll find a growing collection of contemporary artists and figures of note–an antidote to the perception that everything current is ugly and meaningless.
They contain a high standard of artistic technique and beauty–a value in and of itself, one due to make a comeback as we let its healing and transformative properties enter our lives.

Another contemporary Russian painter depicting an ancient Vedic Slavic past.
A group that performs medieval European folk music. I saw them perform live and it was at once a fun and profound experience. Their recordings boast a high production value.
-Their rendition of the Swedish folk song, Säckpipslåt, my favorite version of this song:

Microtonal/Harmonic Series Guitar
The following two pieces of music performed on guitar give a possible glimpse into how music was heard in medieval Europe, prior to when equal temperament tuning became more widespread in the mid 18th century.
They utilize microtones–notes between the notes that our modern Western ears are used to hearing.
Thus, the pieces may sound strange and off-tune to many modern listeners. Microtones are used to this day in Eastern music scales (i.e. on a sitar).
I find the two pieces below are more proper compositions as compared to many other contemporary microtonal works (which often stay stuck in the realm of experimental music) and hear an otherworldly beauty in these:
