Tiff Davis, No Justice No Peace Fine Print. 8.5 x 11 inches, Full Color Print.
Tiff Davis artistically known as @AmericanQueenTJD is a Philly based visual artist who is best known for her vibrant abstract paintings and installations. Although primarily an abstract painter, Tiff has gained popularity from her series of mixed media graffiti crowns. Her vibrant crown paintings highlight motivational words painted on top of human bust-like objects. Self-described as a ‘motivational painter’, Tiff introduces an evolved artistic display of what it means to treat your thoughts like you would a gold crown. She believes that our thoughts wear crowns and so, we must remember to fix or adjust our own crowns and thoughts from time to time. By creating these paintings, she is sending a message about how important it is for every individual to nurture themselves by holding their own thoughts or dreams up on pedestals.In general, her work also stems from her own experiences and what is happening in the world around her. Some of her artistic inspirations are Alma Thomas, Queen Latifah, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jackson Pollock,Joan Mitchell, Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, RGB, Nina Simone, Missy Elliot, and Lauryn Hill. She wants to be remembered for using her art to spread positive energy, messages, and motivation. She considers this type of work motivational art but she also hopes that her work will also make people feel good who suffer from anxiety or self-doubt.
