Thought-Provokers: Hialeah

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

Bryant Del Toro

I deeply want the respect and admiration of the city I love so much, I want to give back to the artist, genres, and people who have made me, me. After releasing this album, I will hopefully be blessed even more with the ability to tour and spread my feel-good sound and happy message to more people across the country. Read more>>

Architecture was my first love. Graphic design became my second and gradually edged into 1st, but it isn’t confined to one path. I”m drawn to the broader scheme of the art industry. The art of transferring one’s imagination to the many canvases of life is what motivates me to promote visual art of talented individuals. Read more>>

Daco Corleone

I started writing lyrics with a major purpose, plus I was taking guitar lessons which helped me a lot.

A few years ago I asked for a DSLR for Christmas and started taking photos of my friends as a hobby. After several photo shoots, my friends bagged me until I opened up a social media page because they argued that if they loved my work, many others would too. As an elementary teacher I felt it would be too much to handle, but here I am now. Read more>>

Daniel Rodriguez

My artistic journey to becoming a filmmaker is I think intriguing. I can tell you how my love for film making sprouted from re-watching my “Toy Story”, “Space Jam” and “A Bug’s Life” VHS’s on repeat as a kid in my parents bedroom, or how watching Sam Raimi’s “Spiderman” in the theater with my brothers in 2001 blew my mind. Read more>>

My dad bought me a guitar and everything so I could learn to play it, and I did, I started playing when I was eight years old, just messing around and whatever people taught me I gave it a shot.

Freaky Kiss

I showed interest in many of the pieces he acquired; apparently, I was even asked by one of the artists what my thoughts on of her pieces was, as a 5yr old, apparently I provided a rough critique. I was always drawing on everything, did my first mural around the same age, by the time I was 7, I realized, Art was the one thing I felt I couldn’t be told I wasn’t good at. Read more>>

Mercedes Mercado

I started out as an actress, but I was always a good writer. A friend asked me to write a short movie script for a producer. When I handed it in, I told my friend it should be shot this way in this scene and that way in another scene. Annoyed, the producer said, “Why doesn’t Mercedes just direct it herself!” And so I did. Although I never directed before, it came very natural to me….and I fell in love. All I ever want to do now is write and direct. Read more>>

I was raised by two strong, powerful women who have influenced my sense of style, sense of the arts and tenderness of emotion in the giving woman as well. Sensitive. Black. Hottie is a divine femme energy supermodel that’s here to remind everyone that it’s okay to be emotional in fact more sensitive to the world we live in and the people amongst us for we are brothers and sisters that are here to bring one another up. Read more>>

Lauren Mary Perez

I remember being so frustrated that I begged my mom to put me in film and drama classes. After taking classes for years within both film and theatre, I competed in New York at age 9. Came back and did several local theatre performances to later re-audition for my school’s drama club and ended up becoming the star in every show. From then on, I realized how much I truly loved the arts and that nothing in life is impossible with passion and perseverance! Read more>>
