Instagram is a welcoming environment for all types of artists; painters, photographers, bakers, dancers, architects, sculptors, the list could go on for days. The medium of Instagram lends itself well to these artists offering a social space for artists to share their work, receive feedback, connect with others, and find new inspiration.
Artists utilizing an Instagram aggregator are able to take their Instagram community a step further by encouraging visitors to their blog or website to engage with their Instagram posts. Instagram aggregators help convey the breadth of their work, how people are responding to their art and help to open up potential partnership and sponsorship opportunities as an Instagram influencer.
There are many artists that have become Instagram influencers and have a passionate following behind them. Each artist embraces their own particular style. Here is a look at influential Instagram artists, from all kinds of mediums, to help inspire you to share your own art.
