1. Bri Pippens
Based in Washington, DC, Bri Pippens’ digital illustrations explore the nuanced beauty and eccentricity of people alongside race, nostalgia, and “Black identity and experiences”. Her 110 inspiring creations celebrate everything from Black Girl Magic to motivational typography and pop culture icons. Incorporating civil rights messages and subjects with large, entrancing eyes, she amplifies the importance of self-love and fighting for justice. From displays of sisterhood to safe spaces to honoring ancestors, we think her artwork evokes empowering vibes.
While her 16 Limited Edition prints provide the same confidence, these prints hone in on famous faces along with popular characters reimagined as Black people. From a Powerpuff Girls portrait to Kiki flying on her broom to the Living Single crew, her pop culture prints are sure to excite a variety of fandoms. With such powerful energy, it’s no surprise her work has been appreciated by iconic celebrities like Taraji P. Henson, Ava DuVernay, Viola Davis and more.

3. Salma Nasreldin

From roller girls to breakfast in bed to spring queens, she brings “near-photorealistic details” into her creations while simultaneously challenging realism through her own “vocabulary of visual glitches”. Making her artwork a great way to add an intriguing dose of attitude or glamor to your space.
Her 11 Limited Edition prints focus on the same style, with a few well-known women in the mix. From Frida Kahlo with a yellow fan to a ballerina with mismatched shoes to Thelma and Louise on the road, her Limited Edition prints are full of chic energy.
4. Only Steph Creations
Based in Akron, Ohio, Only Steph Creations’ passion for music shines through in her colorful digital portraits of popular singers and rappers. Claiming she likes drawing faces because “they say a lot about who we are and how we feel”, each piece is an expression of her emotional connection to that musical artist. Often influenced by a particular song, lyric or performance, her 25 prints feature vivid colors and iconic outfits, sometimes alongside famous words. From Cardi B with her tongue out to Taylor Swift’s Lover look to Post Malone smiling, her artwork gives off expressive energy.
Incorporating the same splashes of bright hues, her 5 Limited Edition prints highlight even more legendary musicians. From Freddie Mercury passionately singing to Machine Gun Kelly with flowing hair to a Doja Cat close-up, her prints really pop. Making her art a wonderful way to create a vibrant atmosphere.
5. Elexa Bancroft
Inspired by her favorite pop culture shows, music and of course her many music students, Atlanta artist Elexa Bancroft creates original mixed media art of lyrics and famous quotes with recycled sheet music and book pages from her classrooms and teachings. Featuring a collage style with swipes of color, each of her 177 creations showcase motivational and recognizable words from film, TV shows, songs, Broadway shows, and more. From Tom Petty’s Free Fallin’ to lines from Grey’s Anatomy to expressions on strong women, we think her artwork can be a lovely way to create an inspirational or musical atmosphere.
Her 51 Limited Edition prints bring even more pop culture quotes to life in her layered style. From happy Disney greetings to powerful Wonder Woman words to popular Doctor Who catchphrases, her prints are perfect for a mix of fandoms. With such a large collection of exciting works, Elexa was a featured artist at New York City’s Broadwaycon, won the Amber Grant for women small business owners, and was nominated for March of Dimes Atlanta Women of Distinction for her work in the arts and music in her community.
6. Simone Scholes
Simone Scholes’ mixed media portraits of different kinds of peaceful and stylish females “captures both the outward beauty and the inner mysteries of human beings”. Inspired by fashion, self-care, and music, she often uses a variety of materials on a wooden board and “plays with familiar shapes and light to create different personas”. These personalities shine through in her collection of 36 prints incorporating mindful expressions and summer accessories. From flower power to generation consciousness to Indian spirits, we think her layered artwork is full of intrigue.
Her 9 Limited Edition prints feature the same type of portraiture, but these prints mainly focus on famous musicians. From a serious Amy Winehouse to a man with headphones to a smiling John Lennon, her prints reveal intimate energy.
