#artchain is a social media nomination in which artists are posting images of their work, normally for 5 days, and nominating others to do the same. I particularly respect artists who are using the opportunity to share the work of others to broaden followers exposure to art.
For this post I’ve collected some images found using the hashtag; the collection contains various mediums which is a benefit of the ‘viral’ aspect.
There’s a great mix of styles which allows the realism in the focus of the image to stand out. Emily is from the UK but travels a lot.
Claire paints Scotish landscapes, I had to look at pure shores twice to check it wasn’t a photo!
Don’t leave it to those with dedicated art pages, if you’ve got photos of a drawing, sculpture or your favourite craft I challenge you to join the #artchain. Share a photo of your own work today, something of your friends or a post on this blog. I really enjoy sharing art I like, once you have yours you only need 4 more!
