When it comes to visual social media, Pinterest is king. (Maybe we should say it is queen, as it is still used more by women than men.)
Pinterest is a great way to search for art, artists, and architecture because it is so highly visual. If you yourself are an aspiring artist, Pinterest is a great way to see what other artists are creating. There are Pinterest boards dedicated to art and architecture in general. There are also boards that focus on one specific medium.
If you are looking for the perfect piece of artwork for your home or office, you have several options. You can go to a gallery. You can go to a home-decorating shop or craft store. You can check out low-end, all-encompassing bargain websites like Art.com or AllPosters.com.
But more and more art lovers are turning to Pinterest to discover art. Why? Well, first of all, it is extremely sharable. In addition, you have everything at your fingertips, whether you are lying in bed or sitting at a coffee shop. You can also easily see other people’s taste in art. It’s a real kick to run across a board of someone who looks at art just like you do.
Pinterest allows you to see and share art from all over the world. It’s really a gathering place of art lovers. For some, it’s like having the Metropolitan Museum of Art right at their fingertips. And best of all, the museum is always expanding.
The other benefit of perusing art on Pinterest is that it’s a great place to go for tips on creating your own art. There are boards dedicated to art supplies, art tips, art projects, and art techniques. If you are taking some time off of work and are interested in doing a little recreational art project, Pinterest can give you some great ideas. Then, when your project is completed, you can share it with the rest of the art world.
