Cannabis Artists to Follow on Instagram
Published on 10/20/22
Art and cannabis have always been inextricably linked. Cannabis use lights up the creative spark for many -- not only to create art but to consume it. Colors are more vibrant, textures are more varied, and sounds are more layered under the influence of marijuana.
The term "cannabis art" is extensive and includes any medium that uses our favorite plant as its muse. Many people are creatively inspired to honor cannabis, from photography to ceramics and everything in between. While most cannabis arts used to be limited to dorm room posters, the cannabis art world has completely exploded in the modern era.
Instagram has become a modern hub for the cannabis community to find some incredible art from just a tap away. On Instagram, graphic art, pottery, videography, and other visual mediums easily connect with their cannabis-loving community. Below, we've rounded up six of our favorite cannabis artists to add to your feed.
BambashkART is a Europe-based artist that lives by the slogan "Giving new life to vintage art." Their work features vintage muses like pin-up girls and classic landscapes with marijuana nugs, leaves, joints, and bongs. They also deal in trippy details like space, aliens, and UFOs. This juxtaposition is both ironic and aesthetically beautiful. BambashkART is a print artist who creates both frameable prints and stickers. You can also purchase their designs digitally. You can find BambbashkART's prints, stickers, and more on their Etsy site.
Cosmic Ceramics is a pottery artist based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Their Instagram bio states, "support your favorite pot dealer," cheekily referring to their cannabis leaf-adorned mugs, plates, ashtrays, and other wheel-thrown functional ceramics. Their signature look is raw terracotta peeking beneath a rich, dripping glaze, as well as stamped pot leaves, smiley faces, and mini mushrooms. Cosmic Ceramics makes handmade pottery from terracotta clay with dripping, multi-dimensional, colorful glazes. The terracotta portion is unglazed, providing a textural dichotomy between the finishes. You can buy Cosmic Ceramics wares on their Etsy storefront here.
Asia Taber is a visual artist and photographer based in Los Angeles, California. She creates elaborate scenes with everyday items bursting full of cannabis - from a cornucopia to a cake stand. Her company is called "High Pilot," named after her discovery that she has a better ability to navigate (or "pilot") her emotions while high and being inspired to create art celebrating this. Asia Taber sells cannabis photography prints and merchandise like sweatshirts and hats featuring her art. You can buy Asia's photography on High Pilot's website here.
Sunflower Form is a Brooklyn, NY-based visual artist focusing on traditionally psychedelic motifs, including peace signs, mushrooms, flowers, and yin-yang signs.
