It might be called ‘The Gram’, but it’s worth a TON of exposure. Instagram has always been all about visual impact, and it’s where you find some of the finest artists in the world today, from the heavyweights to the hidden talent. Abir Pothi embarks on a series that will highlight the best of Instagram artists we manage to discover — those whose artistry you could take an ‘Insta-nt’ liking to!

This is a beautiful example of a colourful terracotta painting. It is unique because it presents us with a rendition of Alponna a terracotta plate.

This painting is striking to look at. The colours are bold and done on a circular surface.

This is a highly intricate painting done in painstaking detail. What draws ones attention is the fact that the repetition of pattern is so precise.

This artist finds painting pots very addictive. The addiction is a good one because she is producing these beautiful works!
