Instagram is an ever growing platform and recent figures indicate that there are 800 million active monthly 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, galleries and shops and show them support by following their pages.
We are huge fans of Instagram, so, in the spirit of collaboration and celebration, we thought we’d share some of our favourites with you! This month, we’re focusing on Galleries in and around Brighton, we hope you enjoy!
If you love their Instagram accounts, we would like to encourage you to show your support and give them a follow, so you can keep updated with their new work and inspirations.
