On Instagram you can find not only photos of people’s meals but also a few artsy jewels. Today we want to show you which of the recognized artists are active on social media and have Instagram accounts.
1. Ai Weiwei
Instagram name: aiww
Ai Weiwei is one of my favourite artists: he is so engaged in current affairs and social issues. His art is a response to anyone who claims that art is detached from real life. Moreover, on his Instagram account you can get an isight into what’s he’s up to next!
Instagram name: banksy_artwork
Banksy is a quintessence of street art, protest art and originality. He never showed his face to keep anonimity and make people focus on his art. Hence, you won’t find any selfies on his Instagram, but you can definitely discover his latest works!
3. Tomokazu Matsuyama
Instagram name: tomokazumatsuyama
Matsuyama is a Japanese artist who lives and works in Brooklyn. His works are the evidence for his diverse experience of growing up between Japan and America, as he uses the language of Japanese woodblock prints, American pop art, as well as classical Greek sculptures or French Renaissance painting.
4. Takashi Murakami
Instagram name: takashipom
Murakami is a Japanese artist who often crosses the line between high and low art and therefore makes us question what art is nowadays. His Insta will give you sneak peaks of his private life as well as work.
5. Futura 2000
Instagram name: futuradosmil
Futura 2000 started working already in the seventies, but his beginnings were pretty rebellious. He was an illegal graffiti artist who covered the walls of New York. Now he is more tamed as he works in graphic design as well as fashion design.
