(I’ve not posted in a while due to life stuff that’s been a bit overwhelming but here I am again hoping to start back up with weekly or at least bi-monthly posts. Thanks for checking back after my absence!)
About once a year, I purge many of the artist Instagram accounts that I follow. This is to keep my feed at a manageable level and it gives the motivation to find new, previously unknown to me, artists to follow. There are several artists that always survive the purge because they continue to inspire and/or teach me. They will be the first artists that I profile in this new series of posts which I’ve creatively named “Artists You Should Check Out.”
Eventually, I’ll also cover artists that I’ve started following more recently. Not all of the artists that I plan to profile have Instagram accounts so in those cases, I’ll provide links to their websites and/or representative galleries.
Whenever I travel to cities where these artists show their work or have their studios, I try to go see their works in person because it is not at all the same to see artworks in person as viewing them online. Most of the time, it’s much better in person. And sometimes, you may even have the opportunity to talk to the artist in person about their process, which is always fascinating.
I hope you enjoy learning about these artists that I’m inspired by.
