Are you looking for a comprehensive reference of Midjourney styles?
Getting started with Mitjourney is really easy, but the more you play around with the more you want to control the final image that you are creating.
Learning to craft prompts is one thing, but sometimes you need to nail down a very distinct art style and the easiest way to achieve that is by adding a specific artist to your prompt.
In this guide, we’ll show you how to get access to the biggest collective Midjourney styles reference with over 2,000 famous artists from around the world.

Over 2,000 Artist Styles for Midjourney
Within a relatively short period of time, you figure out what Midjourney’s AI is capable of and where it has its limitations.
If you check out the Midjourney web app, you’ll see that there are various sections that provide references for certain Midjourney art styles.
Unfortunately, we never found this section of the site to be particularly user-friendly since it’s difficult to navigate.
Luckily, the Midjourney community is extremely vibrant and collaborative and they’ve done an excellent job of putting together an absolutely massive list of Midjourney styles for over 2,000 artists.
For each artist, the list provides 3 different types of sample images:
- Artwork by the artists
- Portrait of a person by the artist
- Landscape or environment design by the artist
For each one of these categories, it gives you 4 examples to look at.
Bear in mind, this isn’t actual artwork by the artist but rather the Midjourney AI’s interpretation of what it would look like if the artist created these.
Key Points (tl;dr)
- The Midjourney community has compiled one of the largest and most comprehensive databases of artist styles that can be used in your Midjourney prompts.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Before we close off this guide, let’s quickly address some of the most common questions related to Midjourney styles.
Where can I find the Midjourney styles library?
The Midjourney style library is located in the Midjourney web app and can be accessed by clicking the relevant button in the left sidebar menu or by clicking this link.
Why can’t I access the Midjourney style library?
You must have an active paid membership in order to access Midjourney’s style library. If your subscription has expired, your access will be restricted. Alternatively, you can check out the Midjourney styles reference that we’ve included in this article.
Are art styles protected by copyright?
While you obviously cannot legally pretend to be another artist, most copyright laws around the world do not allow you to protect a particular style of art. You can protect characters, composition, and certain design elements, but not an art style in general. Make sure you check out our article on Midjourney’s copyright terms for more information.
Midjourney is already a very powerful tool on its own and will generate beautiful artwork based on whatever you tell it to do.
However, you can take your control and style to the next level by mixing in art styles of famous and less famous artists from around the world.
