As well as Pinterest, Instagram is one of the easiest ways to share and follow art. Today we do a French artists top 7, featuring their accounts. Pure art, lifestyle, places to visit and important social projects. This is a kind of list to inspire you in many ways. If you are interested in contemporary French creators, on y va.

 

Minimalism

Frédéric Forest is at the same time a design, interior and art-director of Frederic Forest and Clementine Giaconia studio and an artist. On his Instagram account, he shares both interior design works and his own painting, those are a pleasure for a minimalistic style lover. He is famous for his unfinished female bodies. Elegant and elusory, very French way to depict a woman.

Le Pain Quotidien

It shows us both romantic image of the country and its everyday life. At @leoleoparis ( an account of french-based iPhone photographer Hannibal Renberg) one would find beautiful pictures of stylish men and women smoking and having a “café court” in cafes, restaurants, and bars. Renberg also depicts the other side of Paris, where refugees live in the streets and underground. The artist also captures how street art and advertising – an integral part of the city – falls into the atmosphere. And the last unknown pleasure – almost everything is black and white like a goddamn Godart film.

A White Balance

France is famous for its architecture and not only Paris can boast it. @afadingsummer account would be very useful for travelers. It’s not only a no doubt beautiful neat white balanced style feed, but a practical source of locations, cause Aurélie, the blogger, never forgets to put a geotag.

Back To Future

If you are searching for something more underground, something like french dazed and confused, you should check a Vincent Girardot account (@vincentgirardot). With his partner, Julia Stoltz, they are running Julia et Vincent photo agency, which they mostly promote on Instagram. Their style is shiny, unexpected and colorful shooting, mixing 80s, 90s and today’s fashion and photography trends.

Lorraine Sorlet graduated from the Motion design program at Gobelins l’école de l’image. She is a young illustrator and animator, mostly sharing her works on Instagram account @lorrainesorlet. Lorraine is the kind of artist who would inspire you with innocent style and surprisingly simple subjects. She explores everyday life of young men and women, depicting them dancing, making love, reading, writing love letters, crying, showing off etc.

The Best French Instagram Campaign

We can not help but feature a gorgeous french campaign “Like My Addiction”. @louise.delague is still available. For those who missed the story, that’s a fake account of a young french girl, who used to appear almost on every picture with a drink. It actually turned out to be a campaign for Addict Aide in France. They claim out of every five deaths of young people, one is the adiction of some form. Addict Aide provides help, finances, and resources for people who are worried about their own alcohol consumption, or that of someone close to them.
