Visiting art galleries may not be your thing, but thanks to social media, you need not visit the Louvre or Smithsonian to savour the aesthetically pleasing, thought provoking or plain admirable works of art.

Art can be created on a canvas, a wall, a body or with a lump of clay for that matter! An artist is one who can make others see the extraordinary in the ordinary.

Instagram artists delight us with their beautiful pieces of skill in the comfort of our own homes, offices or bean bags, what have you? But as Pablo Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”

So if you truly have an artist in you, or quite simply love to appreciate a work of art, these 11 artists will give you a reason to pick up the brush yourself!
