From the 11th Annual Shorty Awards Best in Art

No longer do artists have to exhibit their art in a museum to have their work be seen by the masses. Instagram and YouTube, in particular, have become incredibly useful platforms to showcase art - if you know how to leverage them. These artists are not only creating stunning work, but managing to engage a worldwide audience as well.
