Free online dating for artists
(Funny enough, at the time, the tech-savvy artist had had the smart phone for only one year.) Internet dating has proven a fruitful topic for other artists, such as Tully Arnot, who created a Tinder-swiping robot, and Anna Gensler, who eviscerated rude Tinder matches in unflattering portraits.There’s even a Grindr-esque app that pairs performance artists with audiences.“This is a site that should be compassionate to people who want to make meaningful connections, and how do you do that?
If you are interested in creative people, then Artist Dating is the site for you.

“As an artist, I hope that comes through over and over again,” Lee told Think Progress.
