Art Attack! Top Websites To Keep Your Inner Artist Happy
This comes with a disclaimer — Booooooom is sort of addictive. An arts and culture website that puts a spotlight on artists, their photo essays are pure genius. For those of you who think design matters (and it does), get some scoop on the latest design trends. Apart from this, you can also send in your submissions. Now is a good time to toss something awesome and get famous!
The Alipore Post
The Alipore Post by Rohini Kejriwal is a great curation of poetry, art, and interviews. Know a little more about Prateek Kuhad or pick Dhruv Seghal's brain — The Alipore Post will keep you immersed for a while. The poetry section is where you can discover lesser-known poets and the fact that they are accompanied by lovely artwork makes it awesome.
Brown Paper Bag
Brown Paper Bag is eye candy! Run by Sara Barnes, you get to check out her beautiful illustrations. Sara also curates illustrations from global artists — you get to explore the art forms of a bunch of cool peeps. Looking for embroidery inspo? There is a special section where you can check out embroidery patterns. We think it's time for us to transform that old denim jacket.
Jealous Curator curates art that makes you jealous. Yup, it's as simple as that! It's one of those websites that you can mindlessly scroll and feel really pumped. JC also has a comprehensive collection of podcasts with super interesting topics like Nothing Is A Mistake, Discipline...And A Bit Of Chance, A Nod To Creativity. Just what you need after a long day of work.
Spoon & Tamago
Got a thing for Japanese art and design culture? Spoon & Tamago features phenomenal writing and you've got to follow this site for all the scoop on interesting stuff like Japanese designers, tea houses, Japanese trains..you get the drift! Go to the explore section on the website and you'll stumble upon categories like books, ceramics, architecture. Also, the website curates hyper-realistic artwork. So cool!
We dig Hi-Fructose for three reasons: it reminds us of Tumblr, it curates brilliant artists and painters, and smashing captions. This art magazine is also quite active on Instagram and stalking their profile is a pleasure. These folks also accept submissions so if you're a Van Gogh in disguise — step out, it's your moment to shine!
