For Your Daily Inspiration, Follow These Instagram Artists

If you still do not have an Instagram account, you should definitely consider making one right now. For many years now, Instagram has not only been a haven for narcissism and vanity. It has also evolved to become a new platform for artists.

And why not? Instagram’s various features make it easy even for an inexperienced social media user to engage and build an active community!

It is far from replacing museums and galleries, but it is slowly becoming the platform for artists—both professional and hobbyists—to showcase what they have to offer.

If you are an artist who may want to feature your work on Instagram, take a cue from these local Instagram artists who have succeeded in bringing their works to this emerging visual platform.
