Contemporary Creative Artists that Should be Showing up in all our IG Feeds

In one way or another, we’re all pretty obsessed with Instagram–especially as creatives and art lovers. We are always looking for other contemporary creative artists to support and get inspired by. For this reason, it’s pretty common to go on a daily search for creative inspiration. But for the most part, we’re being bombarded with way too many selfies and Tik-Tok dances reposted on Instagram. Because of course, everybody wants to be on IG!

According to Omnicore, as of January 25, 2020, more than 100 million photos and videos get uploaded daily on Instagram–and its daily active users surpassed 500 million. Whoa! With these statistics, it’s only fair to ask ourselves, how can I find inspiration in such an over-crowded platform?

Don’t worry, we got you! Here at Musa Creativa Magazine, we have a few favorites of our own and it doesn’t get more creative than this!

Creative Accounts to Follow on the ‘Gram

1. Nicholas Wilton

We’re all about textures and shapes! Hence the reason why we love Nicholas’s account in which he shares his beautiful and creative journey with paintings.

2. Edoardo Tresoldi

We believe that art transcends the surreal! At least that’s what comes to our minds when we see Edoardo’s work. Focused on mesmerizing sculptures made of wire mesh, these images from his work truly deserve to be in your feed!

3. Shantell Martin

Shantell’s iconic black and white line drawings are full of a unique and creative perspective that brightens up our feeds. Not to mention, we absolutely love her super creative website.

4. Cocu Liu

Cocu’s impressive mobile photography takes us on a visual tour of some of the most beautiful street views. We get super inspired with his creative perspective.

5. En Iwamura

Lastly, we’re headed to the ceramic world. We have one word for En’s creative art…mesmerizing! His manga inspired ceramics are insanely amazing!

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, these five accounts belong to some great artists that we’re glad to be inspired by. As artists, we must be comfortable with the fact that we can be inspired by someone else. By doing so, this does not affect our perspective, nor our creativity in any way. Rather, it somehow expands our view on things. Every dose of inspiration takes us to a higher version of ourselves. Therefore, never stop exploring! Find new artists in this great big creative world, support them, feed your soul with all their good vibes, and #boostyourmusa!
