SISTERS IN ART is a series of illustrations by incredible women artists from all around the world, that focus on female empowerment and independence, as well as the growing sense of sisterhood among modern women. From struggling mothers and self-discovering daughters, to deprived women of color and refugees — but also women warriors, magic girls, cunning witches and powerful superheroines, each illustration tells a different story about women who affect and inspire us every day, who overcome all obstacles and rise. Women who eventually teach us who we want to be!
The illustrations are produced in high quality art prints, and they are sold exclusively in the Black Tropicana store, here.

Flowers blooming in her eyes and courage thrives in her heart. Infinitive roots are growing all around and make the body disappear, inside a warm hug. In this hug, she holds tightly the seeds of life, as a guardian, a mother, a woman, a warrior. Now she can finally flourish from the most hidden parts of herself, and grow stronger by the waters of her tears. She is not alone; guardians like her exist all over the world, mysteriously connecting their hope and growing together. The magic of sisterhood.

I’ve always been fascinated with human faces; our emotions are so layered, complex and beautiful. Since I struggle a lot with expressing myself, the people I draw are usually just characters I create who can express my emotions for me. They represent my thoughts and feelings at that moment.

I firmly believe in female solidarity and I think that together we can achieve great things. Sisterhood makes us stronger.
About the artist
Martina is an illustrator based in Brighton, UK. Experiencing life is what influences her art the most. Since the age of 17 she started taking solo trips, which helped her get to know herself better, immerse herself in different cultures, meet locals and travellers, and that has definitely shaped her. She’s inspired by all forms of art, in which she tries to immerse herself as much as possible. She loves drawing people and plants.
