Thought-Provokers: Downtown & Brickell

Miami has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Downtown & Brickell that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Rufina Sky

I’ve always been creative. I’ve tried so many things: doing art and graphic designs, dancing and acting, making unique jewelry and accessories.

I did start out stumbling upon photography through my first 3D Visualization position in Washington, DC — but since we last spoke, I am even more focused on building out the 3D Visualization department of the studio. Read more>>

Jennifer Noll, Walter Santiago and Kcull MarketPlace

From this discovery we created Kcü a virtual marketplace for artist, handwerkers and visionaries to share their stories and sell thier work.

Wuilfredo Soto

At the beginning of my career I found myself immersed in Pop Art and Kinetic Art a few years ago.
