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.

Tiffany Tompkins

The irony of the story is that while my dad was the person who introduced me to my most sacred medicine, he was also the reason for all of my pain. I understand now, the duality of this dimension. I am inspired every day to create and reflect love unto earth. I am a student of life, conquering my art mission through spiritual warfare. Read more>>

I would easily call myself an artist because I love to express myself creatively, especially through the outfits I wear and by sharing my images with others on social media. Interestingly enough, I majored music in college. I still write and sing my own songs, but most of them are not meant to be shared with anyone, so you won’t find them anywhere anytime soon – maybe one day I’ll publish them! Read more>>


Growing up, I had a speech problem where I couldn’t start or hold a conversation and had to go through years of therapy the school system provided for us with. But the music was always there for me and it was my escape and became my blood there’s not a single day I do not write music. Read more>>

Ellena Lourens

I want my work to inspire people, not in a way that’s challenging, but in a way that motivates them to reach within themselves to something that they could share, which would be warm and creative in the same resonance of each piece that I make. I think to expect anything specific in return from viewers of my work would taint my ability to be vulnerable within it. Read more>>

I went to a Catholic school, conservative too, and I was always interested in all kinds of artistic expression. I liked to dance, to my own clothes because I did not like what was fashionable, I acted in school plays. At 15 I had my first music band where I was the vocalist, we played in bars with my friends and that’s how we did it until I was 19. Read more>>

Since childhood, photography has always been my great passion. It is immortality, the desire to relive moments, to perpetuate a feeling, to express your inner poetry, everything is art!

The message is basically that if you try hard enough if you put the time into the music or whatever your art is, Opportunities will follow.

I began rapping at a very early age. I was probably 13 when I first participated in the yearly talent show and performed my original music.
