ArtS­tack

A so­cial me­dia app geared around art and artists

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Reviews -

A so­cial me­dia app that en­cour­ages artists to connect, share and in­spire.

ArtS­tack pitches it­self as an art dis­cov­ery tool with a so­cial side. Es­sen­tially, you can search out art that in­spires you and add it to your per­sonal art ‘stack’: an In­sta­gram­like feed of col­lected favourite art­works that can be shared with other mem­bers of ArtS­tack.

You can fol­low other ‘stack­ers’ and artists (in­clud­ing gallery own­ers and cu­ra­tors) and cre­ate col­lec­tions of your own by us­ing the search bar in the main Ex­plore sec­tion, where you can also see what’s trend­ing.

We searched for Brian Froud, cre­ated our own stack of his work and were then able to link up with mem­bers who are also in­ter­ested in his work. You can also dis­cover ex­hi­bi­tions and fol­low artists whose work is be­ing ex­hib­ited.

The in­ter­face takes some get­ting used to. We found the web­site eas­ier to nav­i­gate ini­tially and a bet­ter in­tro­duc­tion to the bur­geon­ing world of ArtS­tack.

How­ever, shar­ing your own art is straight­for­ward and the app is avail­able for iOS and An­droid de­vices. ArtS­tack is ab­so­lutely worth­while, es­pe­cially as it’s free.

Fol­low­ing an artist’s work means you keep on top of new ad­di­tions and find sim­i­lar artists.
