The Art of The Noir Aesthetic, also known as T.A.O.N.A., is a minority arts collective started in Houston Texas. Our purpose is to create spaces and opportunities that continue to move “The Culture” forward. “The Culture” meaning the many artforms and aesthetics that cultivate and advance our communities.
Founded in 2022 by two minority creatives, one from Los Angeles, California and the other from Queens, New York. These two creatives noticed a void in the arts community and decided to tackle it head on with innovative platforms designed by T.A.O.N.A. to locate and elevate undiscovered bipoc artists of various disciplines. In addition T.A.O.N.A community outreach projects will include free art classes and plethora of resources for children.
