September 15 marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month, a 30-day, annual event that honors the vast ways Hispanic and Latinx communities have impacted the culture and character of the United States. That's a great start—but why not celebrate those communities each and every day?
To help you do just that, we've compiled a list of 15 incredibly inspiring Hispanic and Latinx artists to follow on Instagram. Some of these creatives use traditional materials, like paints and paintbrushes (do not miss Raelis Vasquez's poignant pieces), while others rely on more modern supplies, like drawing tablets, thread, and even crepe paper (translation: the stuff they use to make piñatas). Some make prints and pieces small enough to fit inside homes and museums, while others design murals so massive that they cover entire building facades (looking at you, Natalia Gallego). You can also find the works of a few of these famous artists in newspapers and magazines, and one even curates collages that are meant to be shared widely on Instagram. But the one thing all of these Hispanic and Latinx artists have in common? They'll not only brighten up your feed, but they also might spark a bit of your own creative thinking.
