About deviantART:

We are where art starts, but that's only the beginning. We are the movement for the liberation of creative expression. We believe that art is for everyone, and we're creating the cultural context for how it is created, discovered, and shared.

Founded in August 2000, DeviantArt is the largest online social network for artists and art enthusiasts, and a platform for emerging and established artists to exhibit, promote, and share their works with an enthusiastic, art-centric community. We have over 38 million registered members and attract over 65 million unique visitors per month. Our members — knowns as deviants — upload over 160,000 original art works every day, everything from painting and sculpture to digital art, pixel art, films, and anime.

Artists love us because we are an inclusive and supportive community. We help them find their identity through self-expression. We provide the tools, resources, and exposure to enable them to become better, more successful artists. We inspire people to create art by feeding their creativity. We can't help it — it runs through our veins and compels us to nurture it in others. This is DeviantArt.
