SEAN JOHN PRESENTS:
AMERICAN QUEEN TJD
AKA TIFF DAVIS

As part of our black history month celebration, we are launching Sean John Presents, a series of collections with the black artists you need on your radar. First up is Philadelphia-based American Queen TJD aka TIFF Davis.

American Queen is best known for her vibrant abstract paintings highlighting motivational words painted on top of crowns above a human bust-like object.
Self-described as a ‘motivational painter’, Tiffany introduces a complex vision
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 crown 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.

Her work also stems from her own experiences and what is happening in the world around her. Some of her artistic inspirations are Basquiat, Pollock, Haring, Warhol, Picasso, RGB, Nina Simone, and Lauryn Hill. She wants lo be remembered for using her art to spread positive energy, hope, and motivation. She considers this type of work motivational art.

NO JUSTICE. NO PEACE.

The exclusive, limited edition tee she has created in collaboration with Sean John in celebration of Black History month is the definition of motivation and calls upon the community to effect change. “The art on the t-shirt represents what happens in a world where there is constant social unrest due to the countless injustices experienced by Black and Brown people. It is truly art of the times.”

"This partnership means a lot because it's nice to be a part of a company’s mission to uplift Black folks, giving back to the community,” says Tiffany. “Also, look up to Diddy as a distant mentor and living form of motivation. He is an example to us Black folks who never thought we would or could ever be successful.”
