Celebrating Black History Month with Contemporary Art and Decor

Celebrating Black History Month with Contemporary Art and Decor

February may be Black History Month but here at Americanflat we elevate and celebrate Black independent artists every day. Art is a vehicle for expression, emotion, and experience, and we are thankful for the vision that Black artists share with their collections.

Each piece is a blend of rich and vibrant color palettes that awaken home decor in traditional, modern, and urban homes alike. Art is available in a range of sizes and frame or wrapped canvas presentation for easy installation and inspired curation.
