Thought-Provokers: Kendall

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

I remember when my older brother bought me an airbrush kit, so I started selling t-shirts with my own designs to make some money. Responsibilities and challenges in my life forced me to take a break from doing what I loved. After many years of not dedicating time to my art, I’m back. Hungrier than ever. Never give up on something you are passionate about. Read more>>

My Artist story started recently actually. I’ve always loved art.
