For Patrick Willie (@patrickisanavajo), to be a hoop dancer is to be a storyteller. “In our culture, we use dance to tell stories or lessons in life, to help inspire, motivate and share a positive feeling for others,” explains Patrick, who is Navajo and currently ranked sixth in the world for Native American hoop dancing. “I have always had a passion for creativity, especially with film. I am a big cinephile and using that as inspiration for creative projects combined with culture brings me so much joy.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ During November, #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth is celebrated in the United States. “We indigenous people are only 2% of the population and having a month dedicated to us to help share our culture warms my heart,” he says. “My ancestors and culture have been through so many trials and turmoil though we still stand strong to this day, proud of who we are.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Reel by @patrickisanavajo; Music by @atribecalledred feat.

“Being able to make art about my identity feels especially important considering the barriers that so many queer artists broke down in the past to pave the way for the work that I’m able to make today,” says Savana Ogburn (@savanaogburn), a 23-year-old artist whose multimedia work has a deep connection to LGBTQ+ culture. “Almost all of my favorite artists are queer.”⁣ ⁣ In 2017, inspired by the works of photographer @cindysherman and drag artist @sashavelour, Savana began her self-portrait series, “Identity Crisis,” as a way to explore and express her own multitudes.⁣ ⁣ “To me, #ShareWithPride means being vulnerable, showing work that unapologetically says something about who I am,” she says.⁣ ⁣ “‘Identity Crisis’ has helped me realize that as a queer person, my identity is in flux all the time. Sometimes I’m happier presenting more femme, some days more masculine or somewhere in between, and that doesn’t make me fraudulent or flaky, it just makes me human.”⁣ ⁣ Check out our story right now to see more from Savana as we continue to celebrate members of the LGBTQ+ community who #ShareWithPride. 🔮🌈✨⁣ ⁣ Art by @savanaogburn

Artist Mark Kanemura (@mkik808) describes his videos as “colorful and vibrant bursts of pride, expression and joy that fuse a lot of my interests and passions.” And showing up while honoring who he is in the moment is paramount to Mark’s creative process and life.⁣ ⁣ “I respect that I am constantly evolving and changing and allow myself to do so in a way that feels right for me. I value bringing a genuine sense of authenticity to what I create and share. If I’m feeling joy, I share that. If I’m feeling sad, I share that. When I allow myself to show up in an authentic way, it invites authenticity into my relationships, work and life.” ❤️⁣ ⁣ Reel by @mkik808; Music by @joelcorry ⁣and @mnek

LaMelo Ball (@melo) has been looking forward to this moment for years. All eyes are on the 19-year-old as he steps into the spotlight at the 2020 #NBADraft. 🏀 👀⁣ ⁣ “This is what I’ve been working for my whole life,” says LaMelo. “I’ve been training and working on every part of my game so that wherever I end up, I’m helping the team win from day one. At the end of the day, I want to win championships and be a Hall of Famer. The work to achieve that is happening now.”⁣ ⁣ Beyond perfecting his jumper, LaMelo has been listening to music and spending time with his family to get his mind right for the adventure ahead. “What matters most to me is that my family and those closest to me know who I am and what I’m about. As long as they know that everything I do is for them, I’m good.”

“When I was a kid, I used to draw everywhere and on everything,” says artist Caroline Morin (@cal_dessins_and_co). “I never stopped.”⁣ ⁣ Caroline’s light-hearted and poetic art often plays out on the street. “I love having fun, playing and seeing life on the bright side,” she says. “I love adding humorous paintings or details to street features like grids, pebbles, cracks on walls. It brings tiny colorful touches in a rather gray and dull environment.⁣ ⁣ I draw things at home on paper and look for the perfect place to paste it. I can hang out for hours to find the perfect crack or cable. I must be suffering from pareidolia [seeing recognizable objects or patterns in otherwise random or unrelated objects or patterns] as I can’t help seeing faces and things everywhere!”⁣ ⁣ People are generally rushing all the time. I love to take my time and look deeply at everything. I observe a lot and notice small details. My brain is always on.”⁣ ⁣ #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣ ⁣ Photos by @cal_dessins_and_co

Mantra’s (@mantrarea) exquisite trompe l’oeil murals may deceive the eye, but the truth is that they’re informed by local entomologists across the 20 countries and four continents where he’s worked.⁣ ⁣ “Nature always mesmerized me. Not only sharing delicate forms, colors, details, but also introducing great mysteries. My paintings sit as a mirror highlighting this reality, and I’m forcing myself to translate those instants as pure as I witness them,” says the French painter.⁣ ⁣ The street artist’s hyper-realistic (and scientifically accurate) works — including many of butterflies in specimen cases — are painted on multi-story urban facades, totally freehand without using a projector or a grid, as a reflection of the role these fragile species play in the world’s biodiversity.⁣ ⁣ “My intention is to find an answer that can respectfully bring harmony in the place I’m painting. Each mural is the result of an endless quest for balance, and playing with perspective creates an interesting dialog with the architectural landscape. I’m trying to create not only a realistic and vivid mood, but also a poetic and romantic one.”⁣ ⁣ #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣ ⁣ Art by @mantrarea photographed by @ogcaballero

French artist Jean Jullien (@jean_jullien) creates his work with a light and humorous touch.⁣ ⁣ “I get most of my ideas through observation, whether it’s visual commentary on everyday situations, playful takes on existing objects or moments observed and painted. If something makes me tick, I try to find a visual way to play with it and adapt the medium to whatever seems to work,” he says. “I value playfulness, and I find it quite stimulating to practice this sort of ‘creative gymnastic’ on a daily basis, trying to find new ways to interact with things and objects around me.” ⁣ ⁣ Earlier this year, Jean was invited to create a series of sculptures for the Jardin des Plantes de Nantes, in Nantes, France, the city where he grew up. While the giant sculpted characters appear to be constructed of paper, they are mostly made of steel.⁣ ⁣ “I knew from quite early on the limitations of my practice, and that rather than to try and learn obstinately I should focus on simplicity and play with it, observing happy accidents and seeing what novelty might appear from experimentation.”⁣ ⁣ #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣ ⁣ Photos by @jean_jullien
