Thought-Provokers: Fort Lauderdale

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 Fort Lauderdale that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

David Welch

To flourish in this industry, he created Over Under Media; a production company with the goal of capturing powerful imagery that people can connect with and share. Under this new name, David R. Welch will go to farther, higher, and quite literally deeper than anyone else to capture that perfect moment. Read more>>

Gee Paid

Whatever you do not know do not be afraid to ask questions and gain insight. Trust me it’ll be way more worth it. I dived straight into music without knowing anything. I thought all I had to do was make a song blow up and I’d be rich lol I was wrong. Read more>>

Erick Vilches

Art for me is not drawn by monetary reward but the feeling I get when someone loves my artwork as much as I do. My artworks inspiration is drawn off of events that occur and experiences I have so I would say it affects my artwork immensely. Read more>>

Shirley Anselme

I tasted her cake one day while over their house, and ever since then, I have been hooked. I truly admired how she worked in the kitchen but knew that she would need us to help build a business around her baking because all she ever wants to do is bake. Read more>>


We create music to connect with people and transmit the passion immersed in our sound to boost their energy. Our inspiration comes from other artists who have felt the funkiness and grooves in their veins just like we do. Each show, each recording session. Read more>>

Alex Siniscalchi

It is a need that fills me and is what motivates me to do it. That’s why I think it’s convenient to do the work I do. (EYE, Not everything is so bad, in all my images I’m not against the world hahaha). Love also moves me, and I try to transmit it. Read more>>


Success to me is achieving what you at one point in time thought was impossible. The fact you think you yourself can’t do it should be motivation enough to want to see yourself in that position. A quality to have as a successful artist is to never give up or lose focus of where your end goal isRead more>>

Claudia Aguilera

I’m a mixed media artist. I was born in Uruguay and moved to the United States when I was 19 years old. Since childhood, I learned to appreciate art because I grew up with my grandmother who was an excellent drawing teacher. Read more>>

Carter Babwah

My goal was to bring film techniques into broadcast media. Now it’s slightly changed, as of now, broadcast shows like The Voice and America’s Got Talent, implement more cinematic sequences into live shows. I learned more about freelancing, where I could not just make videos and be a part of something bigger. Read more>>

Laurence Panadero

The summer job ended up being a five-year tenure learning and working from small prototypes to monumental contemporary art. I created a vast amount of artworks during this time, but my biggest piece took me six months, 1500 hours and was 3,5 tons. Read more>>

Evan Lemboris

Drawing a permanent picture on somebody seemed pretty cool. I started seeing more tattoos as we got into senior year. After hearing what people were paying for tattoos, some of which weren’t even good quality tattoos, it made me think. Maybe I could actually turn this artistic passion into a career? So I gave it a shot. Read more>>

Jessica Muñiz-Collado (NIZCO)

When I create music for media, dance, art or theater, I remember that my music should complement the imagery. My music needs to further enhance the story being told, with the goal of giving the viewer a more enjoyable experience. Whether I am composing music for fun or for hire. Read more>>

Vonzell Solomon

Everyone was suggesting that I try out for American Idol, so I did! The first time I auditioned I didn’t make it past the first round, heartbroken I decided that I would never go back and audition again. After some motivation from my family and friends especially my father, I decided to try out again, and I made it to top three out of over 100,000 contestants. Read more>>

Mariajose Callejas

Colombian-American graphic designer, journalist and artist, my artistic name is MJPOP. He discovered in pop art a space to continue a life surrounded by great characters who made history and, at the same time, pays homage to his childhood surrounded by superhero magazines that today are his source of inspiration and creation. Today art is your source of health, life and empowerment. Read More>>
