Ever wanted to know what your favourite artist looks like? Now, maybe you can.
The #artvsartist hashtag is making its rounds again on Twitter, uncovering the veil of art to reveal the artists behind it. The hashtag first began in a post (depicted above) by Twitter user @LaLadybugTV on 8 May 2016, featuring the now traditional format of a selfie in the centre surrounded by several pieces of artwork by the artist. Over the next year or so, it only grew in popularity with hundreds upon thousands of artists around the world jumping on the bandwagon.
Now, in 2018, the hashtag is experiencing a revival, much to my personal delight. Not only is it interesting to see whether an artist’s real face reflects the art they create, it is also a special moment as a fan when you finally get to see the face of the artist you admire. Here are some of my favourites.
