What can't you do on Instagram these days? With an in-built shopping feature, it's never been easier to browse for new decor additions for your place. Most of your favourite creators are on the app, so you can easily save items and start forming a moodboard or wishlist for the pieces you love. It's amazing what a piece of art can do to a space in bringing it to life and injecting some personality. It's all about knowing who to follow, though. Luckily, we've done some digging. These are the most inspiring artists you need to be following right now.
The Bio of Art Boheme reads 'art that feels like warm summer nights' and we couldn't have described it better ourselves. Peach and terracotta and every shade of pink you could imagine fill this artistic feed with prints that are simple, graphic and the perfect addition to any wall.
Hôtel Magique is one of our favourite Instagrams to peruse recently. From rugs to art prints, we desperately need our very own piece to hang proudly. With punchy typography and wavy patterns, this beautiful Instagram feels like a retreat to the South of France.
Byron-based Jai has gained a cult following with his highly expressive figures that he delicately paints by hand. He's got an impressive back catalogue as well as limited edition prints in his loose, signature style.
Based in Sydney, Angus meticulously paints all of his works by hand. His vivid faces and figures are modern and graphic and would suit a variety of interior styles beautifully. You can even request a custom colour to perfectly suit your scheme.
Grace works in rich oil paints to provide a distinctive depth to her work with the use of textural backgrounds. You'll see a variety of subjects on her Instagram, from feminine shapes to fruit-filled still life studies.
Robert's work spans over a decade and focuses on the beauty in the mundane. His paintings are often focused on suburban landscaped and highlight the repetition of shapes or the warm nostalgia of our own childhood. His work is highly detailed and both realistic and whimsical at the same time.
With papers made from recycled and raw hemp fibres, each of Wabi Projects' stunning graphic prints is silkscreen printed by hand with non-toxic, water-based inks. Their tightly-curated collection is filled with organic shapes and contemporary tones that are minimalist and eye-catching simultaneously.
This stunning range of affordable prints and posters are created in a collage-style aesthetic using warm, earthy tones to depict various faces and figures. The romantic artworks are reminiscent of a long sunset picnic in the French countryside and we'd love one of each, please.
