All the hashtags have been handpicked.

So there are no super random hashtags or super general hashtags in the app.

These are the hashtags that the art community on Instagram use or have created to connect with each other.

Let’s look at some of the most popular Instagram hashtags for artists.

Instagram hashtags for artists (including art feature hashtags)

The first category I recommend is the “Art” hashtag category.

In there, you can find some of the best Instagram hashtags for art.

There are what I would call the “core” art hashtags. These are the most popular art hashtags the artists community uses on Instagram. There are also hashtags to help you get featured on other people’s accounts (art feature accounts).

Instagram hashtags for drawing

If you draw, check out these hashtag categories:

  • Drawing
  • Doodle
  • Sketch
  • Mandala
  • Cartoon
  • Comic

Feel free to mix some hashtags from the “Art” hashtags category with the “Drawing” hashtag category. This way you can make up your own, unique hashtag group.

Instagram hashtags for Painting

If you are a painter, check the “Painting” and “Oil Painting” hashtags.

Same as before, you can:

  • Use all the hashtags from the “Painting” hashtag group only, or
  • Mix some of the “Painting” hashtags + “Art” hashtags

Instagram hashtags for watercolor

If you are posting about watercolor art, then have a look at the “Watercolor” hashtags.

They are some of the best hashtags used by popular watercolor artists.

Instagram hashtags for digital art

There are also “Digital Art” and “Photoshop Art” hashtag groups.

Many people who share digital art also use “Art” hashtags.

So once again, don’t hesitate to mix hashtags from these categories to create your own, unique hashtag group.

Instagram hashtags for illustration

You will also find hashtags for illustration.

Illustrators usually mix the “Illustration” hashtags with other hashtags from other hashtag groups.

Hashtag Formula recommendations:

  • Use only the hashtags in the “Illustration” hashtag group
  • Mix some hashtags from “Illustration” + “Art
  • Mix some hashtags from “Illustration” + “Digital Art
  • Mix some hashtags from “Illustration” + “Drawing
  • Mix some hashtags from “Illustration” + “Sketch
  • Mix some hashtags from “Illustration” + “Portrait

You get the idea. Feel free to mix the hashtags that fit the most for your account and what you drew.

Hashtags for Home Decor

I 100% recommend to use hashtags that are related to “home decor” if your ideal customers are home lovers. The home community is very vibrant on Instagram. These hashtags are where your ideal customers could be.

So type “Home” in the search bar of the app to see all the recommended hashtags for home.

For example, you could use these hashtag groups:

  • “Handmade Home”
  • “Home”
  • “Home Decor” 
  • “Interior”
  • “Interior Designer”
  • “Living Room”

Instagram art hashtags based on the subject

There are a lot of other hashtags inside the app.

You could also use hashtags that are based on the subject in your art.

For example, if you create art that is based on the “beach“, the “ocean” “summer“, you can use the “Beach”, “Ocean” and “Summer” hashtags. This way, people who consume this content on Instagram can find your art.

Another example: if your art is about nature, you can use the “Nature” hashtags:
