Not so long ago art was one of those things reserved only for the rich and fancy, with the rest of us normals left with posters or one of five stock-standard prints from IKEA.

Though thanks to Instagram, like many things, art is now accessible to the masses. It's also a great way for emerging creatives to get their work out there.

Sure, we're not talking about bagging a Monet for $200, but if you want something unique to adorn your walls and help support an up-and-comer, check out these creative accounts.

Caroline Walls

Aussie artist Walls is based in Melbourne but has lived in both London and NYC. Walls worked as a designer and art director for luxury lifestyle brands for a decade years before moving into art-making full-time. Her works around the female form are all about fluidity, shapes and movement.
