Ten Best Miami Artists to Follow on Instagram
If you follow the right people, your Instagram feed can be more than just another method of procrastination. Artists are often those right people because they know how to express themselves in ways that are visually appealing. This medium is tailor-made for them to play and us to watch.
@FriendsWithYou is one of our fave Miami artists to follow, but who are the rest?
Here's a list of our ten favorite local visual artists doing Instagram just the way we like it -- by giving us a peek into their lives and their process, showing us works that are both expensive and accessible, being weird and thoughtful, and giving us every reason to double-tap their pics.
Now, before you even think of typing, "DESE IZ NOT D BEST ARTISTS N MYAMI," we get it. It's hard to pick just ten without leaving out a hundred. Forgive us. Please calmly let us know your faves in the comments. #THAYNKEWE.
Jessy Nite's colorful, contemporary pieces pop off your timeline like candy. So do her selfies, pics of her dog, and the supercute pill earrings from her Roll Model jewelry collection. Following her means sitting front row while she gets tatted and discovering she has the willpower to avoid Lee & Marie's coconut croissants.
Nate almost exclusively posts images of his works, from start to finish, but dammit, his oil paintings and watercolors are so gorgeous. Women in masks are a recurring theme. When he flips his focus to his fixie or shows how he keeps his bod, um, picture perfect, that's not so bad either.
