Thought-Provokers: North Miami

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.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around North Miami that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

To me “Art” is a shorter way of saying “expression.” “Expression” is vague and art is too in a way but there are so many ways to do them both. I consider myself an expressionist because some of the things I do most wouldn’t call it art, but i do. Read more>>
