The study investigates the impact of Instagram on the works of emerging South African artists. The purpose of the study is to assist emerging South Africa in successfully using Instagram for promoting their works and mitigate the challenges they encounter. The study looks at Instagram as the proposed solution in mitigating the challenges encountered by emerging South African artists. For this study, key informant interviews were conducted where experts shared their knowledge on how to successfully utilize Instagram. These experts include two South African artists that have a huge following on their Instagram page. The study suggests that lack of interaction with the audience and lack of activity leads to failure in successfully using the platform. The study also suggests that consistent engagement and activity within the platform leads to great results. Furthermore, using hashtags, promotions, and producing more work helps in growing the platform. Both artists have illustrated that Instagram is a great platform to use for promoting works of art.
