We here at the art spider love buying and selling art. We also love reading about art. Artwork is exactly that, work, hardwork and is encountered with great resistance in alot cases. Because of this, artists produce great stories, inspiring and worth reading about it. Knowing about the time and effort put Into a painting for exzample, can make you appreciate it more. There are also alot of new and creative things happening in the art world that you should know about.
That's why we suggest you read some of the really cool art blogs out there. Below, are a list of our favorite top top 10; we hope you enjoy them as much as we do. 😎
