#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 Β 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 freeβ€”what more could we really ask for from social media?

The hashtag was created by Twitter user,Β 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.
