Our country’s got some amazing artists. And we have social media to thank for bringing us closer to them and allowing us to be able to appreciate their work. Now, thanks to Twitter, everyone else can appreciate them too. Desi artists are being celebrated on Twitter under the hashtag, #SouthAsianArtists. And you’ve got to see how brilliant all the artwork is.
