About us

Myartisreal is an online gallery and independent publisher of contemporary art content. Through our online shows, daily articles, podcast, and other content we set out to bridge the gap between viewer and artist through meaningful stories.

Our Goals

Myartisreal was founded by Jacob Johnson in 2016 and started out as nothing more than a simple Instagram account to share his interest. Before it was named Myartisreal it was just a personal account, but as the account grew and Jacob’s ideas for Instagram profile grew the name was then changed and forever stayed “Myartisreal.”

In the start, it was simply to find good art and share it. Why? Well because it was nice to show off what you enjoyed just how you can’t wait to recommend music or a tv show to a friend, for Jacob he couldn’t wait to show off his art discovery.

Myartisreal has evolved and changed over the years and with Jacobs calling to be a curator Myartisreal has become a platform for telling stories. We believe that curation is like directing, instead of actors you have artworks. Each work is full of meaning and emotions and by curating these works we tell a story.

Our goal is to become the platform you visit when you want to dive deeper into art, not just to look at art on a feed but to read about works. Listen to audio about artists and their past. Myartisreal is pushing culture forward by expanding the reach of art as a whole.

Once I saw “Exit through the gift shop” my life was changed forever.

Myartisreal Blog

We launched our blog (www.myartisrealmagazine.com) back in 2017 with the interview of some close artist friends. Since then we have set out to release one or more articles each day. With various series of articles such as our ‘look at’ series which shines a spotlight on an artist or artwork and attempts to provide the reader with more information on the artist and what exactly makes them work so noteworthy. 

We also feature written interviews and informative articles that showcase various art exhibitions at our close gallery friends around the world.

Submissions

Since our launch, Myartisreal has had over 20k submissions from various artists across the world. We believe in helping artists grow and be discovered, and as much as we would like to share each submission it would be impossible to do so while maintaining a curated page.

Each submission is saved and we will sometimes share works from this file we still want to offer artists the option to promote their works when they need it the most and it’s this reason we offer promotional posts on all our Instagram pages.

Promotional posts are a way for artists to pick the exact artwork, caption, and time to have their works shared. Artists often pay for a promotional post for various reasons, to grow their own personal page, to be seen by galleries and collectors, and promote shows and print releases. 

The reason Myartisreal is a better path for growth as an artist compared to other forms of social media promotion is Myartisreal is a trusted platform for finding quality artists and has built over time a dedicated follower base that is already interested in the types of works you are promoting.

I was a little skeptical at first but I was looking to grow my account, after speaking to one of the admins of the myartisreal Instagram page, I felt more comfortable with paying for a promotion. I’ve used Instagram advertising before and had gotten some extra likes on my posts but I didn’t really gain any followers, maybe 5-10 from an advertisement that costed me $30. Unlike other promo accounts, myartisreal seems to have much more active followers and their customer service is fantastic in my opinion. I recently used their promotion services and as of right now, I’ve gained 150 REAL followers in 24 hours. Hoping to use their promotion services again sometime soon so I can get more recognition for my work! - @Naterboyy Collage artist

Jacob Johnson |  Myartisreal Founder – Art Curator

Jacob had no interest in art until he saw the Banksy film “Exit Through the Gift Shop” a street art documentary about Banksy and Mr. Brainwash. After this film, Jacob couldn’t get enough of street art and began to share it on his Instagram page and create art himself. Later he expands his art taste and turned his Instagram account into Myartisreal. 

While Jacob has and does make art non of it has been released or sold. He prefers to keep it private while his true passion is curation. To Jacob curation is like directing a film except instead of actors you tell a story through the arrangement and selection of artworks.

Jacob curated his very first art show titled “Papi Chulo” at the contemporary Krause Gallery in New York City. The show featured some of today’s top emerging artists such as John Paul Fauves, Revolue, and CB Hoyo. Jacob was only 18 at the time of curating the show. A year later Jacob would return to Krause Gallery for a second show titled “We Happy Few’ exploring the idea of Happiness and a false sense of it in this age of social media.

The best thing about working with Myartisreal is the fast response and the way that Jacob takes care of the project and finds the best option according to my ideas. He’s always part of my team when I think about serious promotions – @revolue Contemporary artist
