If our homes were meals, the artwork we display would be the seasonings that tie everything together, adding the literal and metaphorical spice to any space. Art can take any space from a staged retail showing to a lived-in home with character depth and a unique POV that represents the interests, and in some instances, values, of whoever lives there.

With that example in mind, it tracks that our cultural heritage would have an influence on what pieces we would like to line the walls of our homes — and in a sense — our lives. From our lived experiences to our collection of morals and even just our personal style, art can and does say so much about what we hold dear to us. So, if you have been looking to add more intentional and curated art to your home, finding artists you resonate with is a great first step.

Our Top Art Picks for Your Home

It can be a bit overwhelming starting your search for art at first, as the identities of many artists are hidden or purposely ambiguous, even if the art is focused on themes of Blackness. This can make the process of finding art you identify with dually daunting, as finding a print you resonate with that is created by a Black artist is much harder than it needs to be.

Thankfully, it doesn’t and shouldn’t have to be this way, and there are ways to source and find art that is reflective of your culture and beliefs without the fear of a larger corporation pulling the wool over your eyes by co-opting consumer desire for meaningful connection through their purchases.

So, as you embark on this journey of statement artwork that will help build up the character of your home, here are a few Black artists to keep in mind throughout your search.

Category is Hair

JustJoycelyn, as she goes by on TikTok, has mastered the art that represents our time, and her "Category is Hair" piece is a testament to the relationship Black people have with their hair. To have this represented in your home or perhaps, more fittingly, your bathroom, is truly a chef's kiss addition to any space.

Christina Martinez’s “&Still We Bloom”

& Still We Bloom is an amalgamation of Black forms as flowers highlighting the resilience of Black people. Martinez specializes in art that connects us, and her pieces feature a mash-up of abstract and realist components, creating art that inspires, informs and connects.

Arnold Butler’s “Regal”

Arnold Butler describes art as "a therapeutic prayer session," and his work features intentional strokes, bold colors and personal motifs that speak to his relationship with art.

Caleb Parker’s “Blue Black Print”

For fans of armageddon-style art, the work of Caleb Parker will likely resonate. His Black-focused art explores the motifs of the Black experience, ranging from widespread stereotypes to internalized tropes.

Fritz Von Eric’s “Let’s Just Chill”

Fritz Von Eric is known for illustrating the Black femme form through aesthetically distorted silhouettes, bold brush strokes and bright colors. The New York City designer has a host of prints to choose from, and while women presenting prints are an undeniable focus, his work explores multitudes.
