Are you interested in Art and various artists? Do you like to check out art on a regular basis or to be exposed to art? Are you having a hard time making it to a gallery or an art museum? Or do you just want to check out some art whenever you feel like it, without having to even go to a museum or a gallery?
If you’ve said yes to one or more of the questions above, then I believe that I have a great website to share with you. Its called Artsy and you can find it here. Artsy is an online gallery where you can not only check out some awesome art, but also read about the artist and get a detailed picture of the person behind the art as well.
As they say on their website;
Artsy’s mission is to make all the world’s art accessible to anyone with an Internet connection.
We are a resource for art collecting and education.
When I studied History of Design at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, I wish that I had the access to or known about Artsy since it gives you so much knowledge along with the art you’re looking at. When I went to Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) in New York City last spring (which you can read about here), we checked out, for example, Piet Mondrian (who I had studied at school and who you also can read about here on Artsy!). To be enriched with the knowledge that I had gotten from school about Mondrian’s work, and then look at his actual work made a huge difference. However, if you can’t make it to MoMa, for example, or you don’t attend a school to study art or design, but you just love art, then I would say that Artsy is a great resource. Check it out and enjoy!
