Photography Instagram Hashtags

We’ve got a dedicated article on photography art hashtags on Instagram!

What are the best hashtags for art to use on Instagram?

We recommend 2 types!

  • hashtags that’ll get your artwork seen right now
  • hashtags that’ll get your artwork seen over a long period of time

Hashtags that will get your art seen right now will typically be the popular ones most artists use, i.e. hashtags that are already being used in over 500,000 Instagram posts.

Hashtags that will get your art seen by people over a long period of time will typically be emerging hashtags or less popular ones that are connected to less than 25,000 other IG posts.

To achieve some of the best results…

You should always use a mixture of both popular and less popular hashtags, especially if you don’t have many IG followers yet.

But of course…

Finding the perfect blend of art hashtags to use in your posts will require some trial and error.

That’s why we created a successful hashtag formula for artists to use on Instagram.

Check it out now — then apply it!

Instagram Hashtag Formula For Artists

Silver Oak Design – Hedgehog Reading

  1. Categories and subcategories
  2. Subject matter
  3. Style or type of artwork
  4. Tools or software you used
  5. Something silly, random, or thought provoking (that’s related to the artwork)
  6. The perfect room to display your art
  7. Your real name or IG username (to create a nice branding effect)

This formula works on Instagram!

To get as many views as possible though, you also need to use the maximum number of hashtags allowed in a post.

Currently, Instagram will limit you to 30 hashtags per post — which is a lot!

To make things easy for you…

You can use the hashtag formula above to get you started; then you can find all of the remaining art hashtags you need by referencing the ones in this guide that we made for you!

To give you a stronger idea of how to use the artist hashtag formula, we applied it to one of the artworks submitted to us by the Displate artist community.

Example Of The Artist Hashtag Formula

  • Categories and subcategories (#nature + #wildlifeart #animals)
  • Subject matter (#amphibian + #frog + #treefrog + #sunflowers)
  • Style or type of artwork (#watercolor + #watercolorpainting + #watercolorfrog)
  • Tool used (#winsorandnewton + #windsorannewtonwatercolor)
  • Something silly or thought provoking (#ribbit + #froglove + #savethefrogs)
  • The perfect or ideal room to display your art (#kids #nurseryart)
  • The artist’s name or IG username (#sillierthansally)

Conclusion

Now that you have access to Displate’s guide for Instagram Art Hashtags and the Artist Hashtag Formula that we recommend…

You’re all set to begin sharing your artwork on Instagram and having it discovered a whole lot more — all thanks to tweaking your posting strategy using the best art hashtags!
