travel with us

Brimming with intellect and artistically-focused insight too many black artists are not enjoying the fruits of the talent they harbor.  

We are dedicated to growing the pool of professional black artists.  If you are an artist that wants to grow check us out.

Without a doubt Obsidian Arts is developing some of the boldest travel experiences on the market.  Our goal is to bring the global black experience to you in intimate and intelligent ways.  We plan the trip and now work with professional agents to implement. Join Us!
