by Jun 27, 2017Art Explored0 comments

Instagram is an ever growing platform. Current figures indicate that there are 700 million active users sharing pictures of their lives. The features within Instagram allow you to search and filter through content using links, hashtags and location.

We love Instagram, as its a great way for us to support artists and celebrate their work.

One of our favourite pastimes is to hunt out amazing work of local artists and show them support by following their pages? In the spirit of the SOL Design Collective, we thought we’d share some of our favourites with you!

These are just a few amazing Sussex  artists to watch, we hope you enjoy!

If you love their Instagram accounts, show your support and give them a follow, in that way you can keep updated with their new work and inspirations.

The elusive street artist who goes by the name ‘Minty’ has got the whole of Brighton wondering who he is. His fun, colourful paste ups can be seen all over the city and their quirky nature will be sure to make you take a second glance. Follow his Instagram for little snippets of him putting his art up and to be in with a chance of finding one of his presents which he leaves for people in secret Brighton locations. He puts the directions up on his account at random times and whoever is first to get there can keep one of his pieces.
