Many amateur and professional street artists post their street art on Instagram as a way to publicize their pieces and adding longevity to the pieces life span. By creating Instagram accounts, these artists can use Instagram as a digital platform to establish themselves and popularize their work. Instagram allows for anyone to see a photograph as long as the account is public, and offers a number of ways for those photos to be seen (such as following certain users, the use of hashtags, geotags, the “popular” page, etc.) Feel free to spend some time browsing this Austin based street artists Instagram account before we continue this discussion on the rise of digital street art content at our next stop.
