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.

Castro Tarantino

My inspiration for what I do every day comes from “Greats” of my industry, past, and present while trying to always create a bodywork that people can get inspired from, cry to and share laughs with. My goal with film is to create a mood, and feeling people can relate to instantly. Read more>>

Tp Miller

My story is that I am an entertainer who started out as an R&B singer & adapt to comedy, so I saw myself as a triple-threat acting, singing, making the people laugh. Today’s artist has it easier than the ones before! We have so many outlets we can use and now it’s all about the grind! Life became easier! All Miami has to do is SUPPORT WE ARE SOME TALENTED INDIVIDUALS. Read more>>

Johanna Murua

I think that’s never easy for artists to live from it. I don’t think anyone has it easy, really. But if you enjoy and love what you are doing, you will keep on trying.What you guys are doing, it’s an excellent way for helping local artists share what they are doing. Read more>>

Luis Padilla, Giuseppe Foresti, Anthony Brochero, and Pierre Posso

We’re still building together, with the same energy and focus that we felt the day that we first started. We often like to say that we’re four parts of the same brain & while we may not always agree with each other, we’re always on the same frequency. Vibes are everything, and we know our brother’s energy is still with us, so everything we do is to make him proud. Long Live Rico. Read more>>

Adrian Gonzalez aka Roc Sol

Throughout the years, I started listening to old school hip hop while still enjoying the music that was being released at the time. I was big on learning about the culture and really knowing the history of hip-hop. With art, I have always had a passion for art at a very early age. Read more>>

Polo Pierre-Louis

I am the CEO and Owner of “PLAIN OPERATIONS”, a consulting firm specializing in the fashion, music and film industries, from runway show styling and curating, music video creative direction to logistics coordinating for record label executives. Read more>>

Pepe Lazcano

My work of art has an autobiographical and experiential character. It is a work that is marked by the relationship between man and the environment in which he lives, specifically the relationship between man and the living (the home). Read more>>

Paul Columbus

Painting became a focal point in my life in 2013. I began to use art as therapy. I was coping with the diagnosis of my father, Joe Columbus, with cancer. My father left his physical form on June 9th, 2015. I continue to paint in his honor, and pay tribute to him with my art and carry on his legacy to “Live with Love.” Read more>>

Diane Lary

I create vibrant and expressive watercolor paintings, typically on 300 lb Arches cold pressed watercolor paper with transparent watercolors using a variety of techniques. My favorite method is wet into wet, where I mingle the colors together on the paper in a small puddle of water to create a beautiful soft glow. Read more>>

Danielle Romero

I’ve done some design work for apparel clients and that industry as a whole is very interesting to me, so I’d love to continue doing projects like that. Furniture is another area I feel a strong pull toward. My mother’s family owned a furniture company that began in Cuba and later continued here in Miami when my grandparents immigrated. Read more>>

Jose Luis De La Paz

My father, a doctor by profession, was a great flamenco aficionado. He was always listening to classic singers and guitarists, and I played around his sound equipment. I got my first guitar when I was just 3-4 months old. From this young age, I played with that guitar, and then with others, creating chords and riffs. Read more>>

Natalie Bru

Throughout my childhood, I enjoyed art and would happily sell my drawings to family members for $0.25. And although I loved art more than anything, I steered away from going to art school because of the “starving artist” stereotype and was conditioned by society to believe that only a few people are successful. Read more>>

Sofia Porzio

I was always interested in art, since I was in elementary, with the help of my first art teacher. She pushed me within the class during first grade to fourth grade. Then, in fifth grade, my teacher was replaced, by my past Language Art’s Teacher, who didn’t particularly like me before. Read more>>
