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 basically had my best friends become my “models”, and what was just a fun little hobby to me, quickly became into a passion of mine. I never realized how a simple photograph can turn into a very elaborate or detailed story with just the image being there. Read more>>

Art Therapy helped me overcome my depression and I devoted more time to drawing, painting, experimenting with pencil, markers, collage and acrylics; as well. I read extensively about art and artists, and made it a point of attending galleries and art shows. Read more>>

Cristina Mondragon

Going back as far as I can remember I cannot recall a time I was not creating art. As cliché as it sounds I like to think of myself as a kid that never grew up. I am a self-taught artist however my family is very crafty and supportive, that I am grateful for. Read more>>

Gabriela Cabeza

Although I come from a large family of many artists in their different disciplines, including my father, a very important musician at the time in my country, Argentina (Ernesto Cabeza member of the folkloric ensemble “Los Chalchaleros”) never imagine i would end painting. Read more>>

Oscar Gomez

When I was a kid my father bought me a drum set. This was my first love. As time went on I became slightly bored and decided to venture off from rhythm and go into melodies. I bought myself a guitar and a piano. This led me to become an overall musician. Read more>>

I’ve had a passion for photography since I was nine years old, when my mother gave me my first camera! My family is a very artistic family, my mom and dad were both in the entertainment industry and so I grew up around art. Read more>>
