If you are using Instagram correctly, then you’re discovering some great new artists (like I am!) The medium is perfect–small squares of colorful beauty with short captions (and of course, links to the artist’s website of work), all personally aggregated to your interest by IG’s powerful algorithm. It’s like a catalog of the world’s art available at your fingertips.
If you haven’t stumbled onto the art wing of the ‘gram, then allow me to point the way. To get you started, here are five of my favorite artists right now (with links to their IG accounts.) Go forth and follow!
IG: Jonathan Todryk multi-media painter with a keen sense of color (and a touch of metallic!)
IG: Lauren Michelle Reese mama painter who spins realistic images into fantastical beauty
IG: Jonathan Stout story-driven couples photography (follow for Jon’s IG Stories alone!)
IG: Sylvan Clayworks eco-conscious ceramic art (paint palettes, dinner sets, hair clips)
IG: Ed Nash large scale multi-media art based in East Nashville
