#DrawingWhileBlack Is an Online Celebration of Gifted Black Artists

Black artists around the globe shared their work this weekend on social media, using the hashtag #DrawingWhileBlack.

Black Twitter is the unspoken champion of social media. We can almost always count on the virtual community  to produce movements, threads and hashtags that keep us scrolling down our Twitter feeds for hours, often times in laughter and awe.

This weekend, that hashtag was #DrawingWhileBlack, which saw gifted black artists from various backgrounds getting their names out there and blessing our feeds with incredible paintings, drawings and other forms of visual art for the free—what more could we really ask for from social media?

The hashtag was created by Twitter user, Annabelle H, who mapped out the rules for #DrawingWhileBlack on her page last Wednesday.

The hashtag is a celebration of black artists, and their talent is seriously out of this world. Check out some of our favorites below.
