Artists to Follow on Instagram

I follow tons of artists on Instagram, so I thought why not share a few (if 15 counts as a few) of my favourites with you:

@shuturp
Shuturp, also known as Ellie Hopley, creates simple line characters that are consistently amusing. I love. She also has her own clothing line, I want everything pls.

@toianmed
The drawings are flawless and I could basically just look at them forever.

@Ketnipz
Harry Hambley is the genius behind ketnipz. His cartoons, featuring Bean and friends – the dog is my personal fav, are forever uplifting and funny.

@malenabozzini
I discovered Malena’s art when scrolling through Pinterest. I was immediately in awe of her colourful, surreal style and her uncanny portraits.

@rubyetc_
I’ve followed Ruby on insta for years and have never been disappointed. The content is always a surprise but her point of view is always the same. Her cartoons are usually very silly, but she also gets very real about life and mental health.

@nathanwpylestrangeplanet
Nathan shows us the world through the eyes of his endearing alien characters. It can help put things in perspective sometimes.

@hayden_williams
Hayden has always been my favourite fashion illustrator. He re-imagines celebs and cartoon characters in his distinctive style.

@pulpbrother
The acrylic masterpieces of Javier Mayoral are often suggestive and provocative, executed so brilliantly that no one should be allowed to get mad at their content.pulpbro

@davidshrigley
If you don’t know this man’s art then you desperately need to crawl out from under your rock. There’s something about the haphazard style and ridiculous content that I just really really like.

@lianafinck
Liana’s art is often insanely relatable, much of it being scathing depictions of our wordless day to day interactions between strangers.

@zeppelinmoon
Every one of Amber’s pieces features an animal character (fantastic already) whose names can be found on her website. Sometimes the message is silly, sometimes it’s serious, either way I love em.

@shagey_
There’s something gothic and haunting about Sara Hagale’s style that I can’t help but adore.

@angelganev
Another one I found when trawling through Pinterest. Angel’s style is beautiful, and I’m mostly in awe because I know any attempt I make to replicate it wouldn’t even come close.

@hillergoodspeed
I will forever be amused by the vacant expressions and blunt speech of Hiller’s characters. I want them all on my wall, thanks.

@jackstauber
Jack’s style is like ‘grizzly tales for gruesome kids’ grew up and became aesthetic. If his art isn’t your thing, he also makes incredible music.
