Best Art Drops: Free Damien Hirst Print, 'Robot Surf' Sculpture & More

Including a resin figure of Childish Gambino in “This Is America.”

Since its debut in 2010, Instagram has become a linchpin in the art industry, for artists, art collectors, and curators alike. Compared to traditional fine art galleries that only select a few choice artists to display and sell their works, the photo and video sharing app is a great democratizer, providing a free digital gallery for anyone to promote their projects.

For this week’s best art drops, we highlight emerging artists such as @whereschappell to established artists like Damien Hirst, both of whom have often used Instagram to purvey their latest works. Read on to view more and let us know your favorites.
