Ever thought of turning a puzzle into a stunning piece of art for your home? Apostrophe Puzzles has made this possible, transforming puzzles into museum-quality pieces that celebrate the work of contemporary artists of color. With each puzzle based on an original painting, art collecting has never been easier or more accessible, bringing fine art directly to your fingertips.

Since its founding in Brooklyn, this Black-owned, women-led brand has highlighted the talent and perspectives of artists of color. The name Apostrophe Puzzles symbolizes both omission and ownership, perfectly reflecting the brand’s mission.

Puzzles have become a favorite pastime for many, especially during the pandemic. They’re a great screen-free activity for families or solo time at home. What makes Apostrophe Puzzles special is their focus on artists and community. Each artist receives 12% of every puzzle sale. Additionally, the company donates a portion of sales to nonprofits in communities of color, like ARTBuds, to support arts accessibility and emerging artists.

These stunning puzzles are also a great sustainable choice, made of 100% recycled chipboard and printed with eco-friendly, non-toxic ink.

For those looking to add a touch of art to their homes, Apostrophe Puzzles is a great way to start collecting prints by renowned artists such as Faith Ringgold, Sheila Bridges, and Ekua Holmes.

“When curating the collections for Apostrophe Puzzles, I am always drawn to bold, colorful paintings with strong narratives,” says Founder Mandi Masden to Home & Texture. “Like any major artwork, they are statement pieces meant to draw your eye, hold your attention, and spark conversation.”

Styling Apostrophe Puzzles in Your Home

Masden shares her tips for adding Apostrophe Puzzles to your home decor, saying, “When it comes to styling our puzzle designs in your home, my three favorite (and effective!) tips are to focus on location, frame styles, and wall color.”

The brand founder goes on to say, “Each of these elements is an extension of the artwork and can work together to help build a visual story around what the piece represents and its significance in your space.”

“I love seeing how our puzzles are incorporated into the art collections of our customers and how they are used to celebrate and reflect our culture and our creativity.”

By focusing on inclusivity, sustainability, and community, Apostrophe Puzzles are paving the way for a new kind of art consumerism.
