Modern LDS Art for a Faith-Centered Home
The Spirit speaks with a still, small voice. It’s subtle and invites you to come closer. LDS gospel art can be and do the same.

Art to Bring the Spirit
Here at The Urim, we want to help you invite the Spirit more fully into your home. As President Russell M. Nelson testified in his 2018 General Conference address entitled “Revelation for the Church, Revelation for Our Lives”:
“It will not be possible to survive spiritually without the guiding, directing, comforting, and constant influence of the Holy Ghost.”
But amidst the chaos of the world and the obligations of everyday life, receiving the Holy Ghost and understanding His promptings can be challenging. As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we have an obligation to make and keep sacred covenants with our Heavenly Father. Having reminders of your values and your promises to the Lord can empower you to stay on the covenant path and become more like the Savior. LDS art prints, like the ones available on our website, can be such reminders for you and your family.
Modern LDS art can also start conversations. Through abstract compositions and nuanced perspectives, our LDS art prints invite you to consider spiritual concepts in new and interesting ways. Subtle gospel depictions can remind you of private and personal spiritual commitments and goals. Unique representations of Christ may also be less intimidating to people who have fallen away from the faith or who express general discomfort with religion. Conceptual artwork can also spark curiosity in those prepared to hear testimonies of truth. Through the LDS artwork available on our website, we hope you’ll be able to represent your faith in a respectful way and have missionary moments with people inspired by the Mormon art you display.
About The Urim
When we bought our first home, we wanted LDS artwork of Christ, but we wanted the style of the piece to match the mid-century, colorful, and clean aesthetic of our other decor. We struggled. It was months before we finally found something–and it wasn’t even by an LDS artist. Since we both served proselyting missions in the Czech Republic, we fell in love with this art nouveau poster by 20th century painter Alfons Mucha. And then we had to go through the pains of printing and framing it. All in all, it took six months for us to get a picture of Christ up in our living room. We knew we couldn’t be the only ones wrestling to find modern LDS art.
Together, as husband and wife, we started this LDS art store, The Urim, to be a one-stop shop for contemporary LDS art. On our website you’ll find large LDS wall art, modern LDS art prints, and minimalist Christ art, all ready to hang in your sleek and simply styled home. Our LDS artists offer fresh perspectives on familiar gospel topics, like faith, gratitude, and prayer, but in ways that you don’t see in Church meetinghouses or temples. We hope that by providing perspectives different from the traditional LDS paintings you grew up with, we can help you find belonging and edification on the covenant path. By inviting the Spirit into your home with faith-centered artwork that speaks to you and your unique taste, we hope you’ll find more joy in living the gospel.
About Our LDS Gospel Art
We at The Urim specialize in contemporary LDS art prints, or works made and produced by LDS artists living today. Our LDS artists’ mediums and techniques vary widely: from pointillism to digital illustration, and from handmade watercolors to ballpoint pencil drawings. Yet all of them challenge the notion that LDS gospel art must depict the faith in only realistic and literal terms. The work featured in our LDS art store is rich in symbolism, intrigue, and meaning. We hope their pieces give you more ways to invite the Spirit into your home.
About Our LDS Artists
As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we’re a part of a worldwide fellowship. As such, our artists come from unique backgrounds and perspectives. While many of our LDS artists are based in the United States, many have traveled, studied, and lived abroad in areas as wide ranging as Abu Dhabi, China, Albania, and Sweden. Several are educators, instructing aspiring artists at schools like Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo and the Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts in London. Their works have been exhibited worldwide and have received awards and mentions in competitions like the Church’s International Art Competition, the Zion Art Society Competition, the 3x3 Magazine of Contemporary Illutration’s International Illustration Awards, and Creative Quarterly competitions.
We believe it’s important to celebrate the many talented women in the LDS art space. In our launch in 2023, 80 percent of our LDS artists were female. We think it’s a privilege to honor and sell collections by LDS female artists and will continue to showcase their work.
Art makes it easy to start a conversation and share your faith.
