Today we’d like to introduce you to Jennifer Noll and Walter Santiago, Kcull MarketPlace.
Jennifer and Walter, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I am a Miami native and love our City. The Kcüll concept was born from a white space we discovered in the artisan market. We had traveled to Colorado for a tradeshow and noticed that local artist (glass blowers) were selling their work via Instagram and other social media outlets because they could not afford the time or the money to set up a personal website/shopping cart.
From this discovery we created Kcüll.com a virtual marketplace for artist, handworkers and visionaries to share their stories and sell their work. We were fortunate when the opportunity presented itself in June 2018 and we were able to open a brick and moratar in the heart of Calle Ocho, Kcüll Marketplace. In this space we feature local artist and emerging Miami brands. Kcüll is pronounced (kool) I used the umlat to pay homage to my German roots. Kcüll is pronounced (kool)
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
The inspiration behind the Kcüll movement is to nurture a current collective culture. Our vision is connecting people on a platform fueled through art and expressionism. We recently created a non for profit named Kcüll Life which will serve to fund murals by local artist in our neighborhood.
Artists face many challenges, but what do you feel is the most pressing among them?
Getting their work out there in the public sector via an economical/practical vehicle.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
