As it’s the last Friday of 2017, here’s a list of the Instagram accounts that have had me double tapping time and again, filling my feed with inspiration and colour. A collection of artists, makers and designers that make me want to get creating.
In no particular order…
The 4 year old says her play space at NOW Gallery and inflatable installation at Broadgate were the best art we saw in 2017. And he’s not wrong.
‘Turning jealousy into get-your-ass-back-in-the-studio inspiration‘. The strap line alone makes me happy!
Aces faces in different places.
Local artist whose musically inspired digital artworks have been delighting my eyeballs all year.
As well as putting out some amazing creative books this year, his Instagram stories are the best.
My original collage crush, still nailing it in 2017.
His piece under the M32 to compliment his exhibition at That Art Gallery was one of my favourite in Bristol this year.
From crafty wizardry to swoon worthy design work, this designer is constantly giving me ideas and making me laugh.
If anyone wants to give me a load of cash so I can fill my house with artworks by this Mexican textile artist, that would be great. Thanks.
If tinsel and pom poms are your thing, you’re welcome.
The account that made me realise that it’s ok to have a colourful Instagram feed.
Italian artist making wonderful art using vintage photographs, Posca pens and washi tape. Fills my head with ideas every time they pop up on my feed.
Brilliantly colourful embroidery work that makes you feel like you can give it a go too.
Love this artist’s work and I always end up watching the videos again and again on loop.
Fuelling my font obsession and a good dose of colour thrown in for good measure.
Colourful designs that I want to wrap my house in.
You’ll recognise her work from the now faded but still beautiful bird and flowers Upfest piece on Raleigh Road. Always blows me away.
(Also. Hands down best IG handle)
Taking #dressedtomatch to a whole new level. The time and effort that must go into this feed is insane!
Moustache toting street artist whose wonky work I love.
Walala says that Myerscough was her big inspiration and you can see why. Beautiful artworks and installations all over the world.
Still dreaming of owning all the silky goodness. And if it’s good enough for Noel on Bake Off…
These colourful sculptures make me want to step our family junk modelling up a level to something a little less Blue Peter.
These videos are mesmerising. Can’t. Look. Away.
Their Guess The Artist game is one of the best things I bought this year.
Another artist making me want to pick up my pens and get creating.
Always end on a high. Fonts and colour and colour and fonts. What’s not to love?
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! I follow so many wonderful accounts it’s hard to keep up. Which are your favourites? Hit me up with some new ones for some 2018 inspiration!
