Discover 10 of the best art blogs to follow in 2020 and beyond to get news on current trends and notable exhibitions.
When I have a day off (which happens quite rarely), I love to visit museums or go to gallery openings. Unfortunately, I have to spend most of my time at the desk, but that doesn’t mean I have to give up my daily dose of artistic inspiration. Thank god, there are some great sites that keep me updated. So today I want to show you my personal selection of the 10 best art blogs you should follow now, in 2020, and beyond. The selection ranges from well-established online platforms to young, independent art blogs.

The blog was launched in 2009 by Danielle Krysa as a place to showcase artworks that made her jealous.

It worked!”
