50+ Art Hashtags To Use on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook

A- | A+

Do you use Instagram, Twitter or Facebook and your posts get buried in the depths of internet within seconds? Do you want to give your art more exposure? We have a list of art related trending hashtags that will help your artwork perform better on all social platforms.

If you are just starting with showcasing your art on social media you may struggle with using the right hashtags or any at all. It is important to understand how they can help to grow your audience.

Hashtags are similar to keywords we use in search engines. If you are looking for an inspiration for your next painting, you might use #digitalpainting when searching on social media. If you want to know what other artists are currently working on, use #artoftheday. If interested in art of other Rebelle users, use #rebelle5. You will find a list of the most recent posts from artists all around the world. Although, hashtags do not need to serve as a searching tool for you to find new inspiration. Using them can let others find you and your fabulous art!

To get your art on these feeds, you need to use the hashtags in your posts. Instagram currently allows up to 30 hashtags per post, Twitter is limited to 140 characters per post including hashtags, and Facebook is unlimited.

Which Hashtags Should You Use?

Always pick hashtags relevant to your work!

Some hashtags are trending really well and if your post gets exposure, your followers count might skyrocket. However, the pitfall of trending hashtags is that thousands of artists are using them as well and your post will get most likely pushed down within seconds.

People are turning more towards less known and quite specific hashtags. Less people follow these, but the audience is exactly what you are looking for. They are interested specifically in your style. Your art will be exposed on top positions longer than in the first case.

Our advice is to use a combination of both approches. Make sure to use trending hashtags combined with very specific ones and see which will work the best. Try to add new hashtags in the mix every now and then.

Here is the list of more than 50 art hashtags you can use.

Art in General

These hashtags are very popular and fit well for just about any art you post. Include a few within your post to get a chance for millions of people to see your art.


Instagram only

Digital Painting

If using Rebelle or any other painting software, you might want to use some of these hashtags within your posts.



Who does not start their new art piece or daily practice with a sketch? Post your drawings using these hashtags.

If you use Flame Painter for image editing or giving your work an extra spark with particle brushes, make sure to tell the world about it. As there are many digital artists and graphic designers using the trending hashtags and organizing various challenges, you have a great chance to let them know about your recent work.

We hope these hashtags will be helpful. Make sure to always tag #rebelle5, #flamepainter or #escapemotions, as we are always on a lookout for great paintings that can be featured on our social media channels. This way, we can create one Community and share valuable tips and showcase art together.

Stay Creative!
