Just wanted to tell you that this is a great way to insipire people, to discover new ideas, artists and concepts. I follow your blog on daily basis! :) Thank you for all the effort of looking for these (great) artworks and posting them here!
We’re so happy to inspire someone out there… Your appreciation is our greatest gift, thank you!
I'm a connoiseur of the arts and literature who's new to Tumblr. (I write on earth-based spirituality as well). I know it takes a while to build a following, but do you have any suggestions to speed the process?
Hélas we don’t really have any miracle solution, except maybe two things: respect (for the artists and the sources) & integrity (always post what you like). You can also explore ART & LIT to discover more bloggers who share the same interest. Nice blogging!
Artists are chosen base on our personal sensitivity. Aesthetically, we have divergent preference: Armelle likes colors and vivacity, Rery, pure lines and abstraction. But we both are intrigued by art that hides a message, tells a poem or makes us dream.
Each time we discover an artist (online or offline), we find 5-6 representative pieces and save them as drafts (we have over 200!). Besides every Monday where a Tumblr curator is invited to share his/her favorite contemporary artist and Friday where a Tumblr artist that we like is featured, no rule helps to decide which artist to present each day. Except the harmony or/and mood perhaps.
Hi ARTchipel! I just wanted to introduce myself and ask you for some advice. I draw and paint and am currently building my portfolio...what is the best way to have my artwork recognised by ARTchipel? I have a ways to go and still need to post more work but would love to be featured someday - any thoughts? ~Melissa
Thank you Melissa for your consideration!
Art is very subjective and delicate, we might not be the best advisors in the field. Our humble advice is to work for yourself above all. With practice and time, you’ll find your own style recognized. Also, a tip to build up your portfolio: a page where curators can browse entirely and only your own work would be appreciated. Hopefully our input could help, keep up your good work!
blueemeralds27, thank you so much for your appreciation! But please do note that we aren’t authors of artworks presented in this blog. They are from more than 200 artists that you can find here & here.
Hi! I love your list post. Please notice me. Thanks.
Hi, glade you like, hope you have enjoyed their work! Although we don’t take submission on our blog for now, we do pay great attention to find new artists. Just took some time to browse your pages, very joyful and energetic illustrations… congrats & keep it up!
