Who's your favorite artist on Instagram?

From musicians to Hollywood stars to athletes to supermodels, you can find interesting celebrities on Instagram. But if those are the only people you follow, then you are sorely missing out. IG is full of today's best contemporary artists, who are either selling their work onto the social networking service, or simply sharing their art, free of charge.

   Alexandre Farto (aka Vhils) is one of my favorites on IG. The 28-year-old street artist from Portugal drills, carves and shatters walls to create stunning portraits. A graduate from the University of the Arts London Central Saint Martins, he gained prominence when his work of a face carved into a wall appeared alongside a picture by Banksy at the 2008 Cans Festival in London.

   But Vhils is not only recognized for his groundbreaking carving techniques; he does stencil painting and 3D modeling as well.
