The switch was fitting for Nevins, who already planned to create a digital store for artists to gain profit for their work.Umba Daima educates artists on Web3 and helps them find their footing in the NFT space. The company also boasts various sub-brands under its belt including Black NFT Art,NFT Roundtable podcast, and virtual exhibit The Unseen Gallery.“We noticed that the artists that were having a lot of success had these really strong communities around them that were promoting or reposting on social media or participating in their drops,” Iris Nevins said in an interview with CNBC. The studio launched Black NFT Art “in an attempt to create that kind of experience for Black artists.”
