Wotartist – A portal of Artists’ websites around the world

This elegantly designed portal is a beautiful introduction to artist websites from around the world. Listings are organized by region (Americas, U.K., Europe, Australia, Asia/Middle East) and directory pages list types and genres (sculpture, painting and photography; Figurative, Surrealism and Expressionism). They are clues that are to be explored—moused over, really—so you can discover who, and what, lies beyond. Trigger the pop-up windows to see the artist’s name and a sample piece. One click takes you to that artist’s website, where you can see more images of their work, learn about gallery shows and get other information. Whether you’re a serious collector or just plain curious, it’s fun to hop from Nick Milliner’s animations (listed as “Weird” on the U.K. page) to bright clay pots by Pippin Drysdale (ceramics, in Australia). But if you’re looking for a particular artist, just Google him or her, as there’s no search-this-site option. If you’re an artist who needs help designing a website to showcase your work, Wotartist has a Wotdesign team for hire. Another site that can quickly suck you in: Getty Images’ 10 ways, 10 separate, uniquely structured virtual paths through one immense collection
