‘Area Noir’: The luxury digital culture space supporting black creatives

Lots of businesses began during lockdown, but have you heard about this new digital gallery.

Founded by artist Ruby Holland, ‘Area Noir’ started to create a space for Black visual artists in the luxury art industry.

It came after conversations surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement, and has been supporting black creatives throughout 2021.

The luxury digital culture space was even recognised by the new social media networking app Clubhouse.
