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.
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 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 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>>
Through my life, I played a little with Cel-Animation but started taking it a serious end of 2017. I wanted to challenge myself in a new medium. Right now, I work as a freelance Artist working mainly with animation. I’ve dabbled in video work through skateboarding that ended up becoming another passion, so I also do a lot of editing work and get opportunities to also do videography work here and there.

I was inspired to create an ep that was really just a studio passion project. I had finally found the sound I had in my head and how to produce it. This sort of large multidimensional orchestral sound was the beginning of what was to become PANS. I’ve been lucky to have a support system of friends that understood what I was going for and wanted to be a part of my vision. Read more>>

For me, paper, sugar cane, any material was an instrument of settlement an object or making my imagination flourish. I loved to imaging me stepping down or under stairs at the castles I sculpted inside of the salt box. Everything for me was a matter to feed myself with art. Read more>>
From a very young age I was drawn to art. I remember I kept asking my parents for art classes, but never were fulfilled.. I was brought up in a very science driven family, where I was to follow in my father’s footsteps, and med school was in my horizon. Read more>>
