Black artists, while underrepresented in galleries and museums, have always been creating significant work in a variety of mediums. So, in our ongoing commitment to giving a platform and more visibility to the many talented black artists, designers, and makers out there, today we’re sharing 24 unique pieces of art (all of which are available to purchase).
Below, we’ve broken down the artwork- which consists of prints, illustrations, photography, and fiber art – into two categories. Colorful pieces, and those that are more neutral. We are committed to giving visibility to these talented artists and creators in the black community – and help expose their work to a wider audience – and we will continue to always do that on this site. But, if there are other artists that you know of please comment below with their links so that this can continue to be a resource for all.
Keep scrolling to see all the shoppable pieces, and show your support for black artists.
