New York-based artist Nina Chanel Abney and her art have been described as having a "high-octane, politically charged voice" (W Magazine), a "sheer tour-de-force" (Papermag), and we're going to add "bolder than brass" to the list.

Abney certainly lives up to the hype: her bright, loud, often political, sometimes vulgar (ie: not in the crass way, in the fierce* and kind of ostentatious way) artworks are not just aesthetically incredible, they are thinkers. Somewhere between street mural and a warped Francis Bacon-esque gallery piece, but also both at once, Abney's paintings have a wild sense of playfulness while maintaining some underlying messages.

Having never set foot in a gallery before beginning her studies, Abney since completed a Masters of Fine Art at the Parsons School of Design, New York. She then exhibited her works and sold out her first solo show Dirty Wash.

*Also, not fierce in the Beyonce way.
