History was made and rules were broken when former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama commissioned Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald respectively to paint their likeness for their Smithsonian presidential portraits.

But regardless of how familiar you are with Wiley and Sherald's work, you might not have known that their Instagrams are full of gems too.
