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

Russell Mofsky

Over the years there have been several different lineups with musicians rotating in and out of the band. The varied lineups have allowed each period of the band’s history to have it’s own unique flavor and flair. Sometimes the jazzier elements are up front. Other times the high energy punk is on display. Read more>>

Got into art during high school, and started playing around with lots of different media over the years, seeing different art and artists. Been lucky enough to travel for work, so have been able to see different styles, old and contemporary in across the states, and in places like Europe, Asia. Still on the journey. Read more>>

I was halfway through my business degree when I attended my first wedding. I was admiring (and taste-testing) the extravagant dessert display when I noticed a woman holding a clipboard and instructing someone to put more dessert where I had just taken some from. Read more>>

Alex Santiago

I’m a fun and goofy kid but sometimes shy. I just have to be comfortable around you so I can show you that confidence and show you who I really am. It was never that rough growing up, there were ups and downs, but everything would turn out alright at the end. I’m from downtown Manhattan, and I’m 18 years old. The person that inspired me the most was my brother. Read  more>>

I consider myself as an inspirational lyricist. I try to encourage people to find and follow the gifts that God has given them through the art of storytelling. God has given me a gift to use creative lyrics to tell a story that most people can relate to. I want people to strive for greatness, and that’s the takeaway that I hope people get from my music. Read more>>

I have abs now from cackling so hard. I finally got a grip on my style around my junior or senior of high school When I graduated and began college at FAMU–the moment my toes hit that campus, I transformed into a very divalicous fashionista. I had to, so may students at my school have a dope style. Read more>>

Daniel Steele

The message I want people to take away from my art is that an amazing moment will pass in the blink of an eye. Without documenting it in picture and video, it may be a memory soon forgotten forever. So I want to capture these moments of smiles, tears, and laughs to keep them as a tangible memory that will truly last a lifetime. Read more>>

This circles back to my modeling days where I didn’t have that service before stepping in front of the camera. It sucks. When you have someone to guide you in feeling your best, magic happens. My superpower is inspiring people to feel understood, important, relaxed, and beautiful. My skill is setting all of the settings to make the photo happen. Read more>>
