Sometimes we try to find inspiration in big art/architecture magazines while there are many unknown artists publishing their amazing work online. It’s been nearly a year since I started blogging with WordPress and during this time I came accross many outstanding blogs. This is a selection of WordPress sites that I find amazing in all artistic ways, some include their own pieces of work while others gather information. If you love art and architecture you should definitely keep an eye on these inspiring sites. And remember:
“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.” ― Pablo Picasso
