Los Angeles-based artist Michelle Robinson, also known as Mister Michelle, recently released a multi-color poster, titled Prevail, that serves as “a reminder of the Black Lives lost, the lives affected by those losses, the resounding cries for justice and… the evidence that collective strength can lead to transformation.” Measuring 18 by 24 inches, the poster features a raised fist — a symbol of solidarity and support — accented with gold leaf.

For her latest work, Martin joined printer Maurice Sanchez to create a series of line-based drawings that take the form of faces, figures and “bird boats.” Her contrasting two-toned works reflect Shantell’s own mixed race heritage, allowing her to explore themes of identity and intersectionality. The prints can be sold individually or as a set of six.

Available in two different sizes, Brown Sugar is comprised of figural, facial and abstract elements that showcase Ivory’s fluid and minimal style. She is the founder of a non-profit organization called the body: a home for love, which works to shift culture around how Black women heal from sexual trauma and provides self-love, community and safe spaces through restorative programming, art, design and wellness.

YoYo Lander is a figurative visual artist who explores the essence of people of color by photographing her subjects and then expressing the image through individually dyed pieces of watercolor paper. Her print Burkina, Burkina depicts two children balancing baskets of food atop their heads. Lander’s work — which begins with a strict composition and color scheme — turns into a visceral and expressive piece that offers up “a sense of truth, perhaps a moment that you’ve seen or experienced.”
