Thought-Provokers: South Broward

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

Samantha Lleonart

My hope through dance is to give people the same feeling I get from dancing. I want to pass on my joy and zest for life through my dance. I want to inspire people to go after what sets their heart on fire and remember that life is so much more than what it seems. Read more>>

Tony Firpi

The place where loud Spanish music could be heard at all times. A place with the smell of freshly baked pastelitos, crochettas & Cuban bread filled the air. I grew up around a very big mix of cultures & religions that really taught me to embrace the differences in people, art, music food & languages. Read more>>

Consistently torn between American and Afro culture, Starve finds his only balance in the sounds he creates. Greatly encouraged by the individuality of Outkast, Marve traverses cross-genre territory influenced by the road trips with his DJ father’s collection of Bob Marley & Fela Kuti, the Boom Bap 90’s he grew up within, and the 8O8’s that have taken over. Read more>>

I was motivated to prepare for my life as a non-commercial artist. At the same time, I became increasingly interested in collaborating with young adults on photography projects, which led me to start a teaching career. In 2009, while working toward my MFA degree in New Media/Photography, I made my experience as a migrant the topic of my dissertation and my studio art project. Read more>>

Photography has always been my way of relating to the world. I am currently an MFA candidate and Ratcliffe Art + Design Incubator Fellow at FIU. I am working to document the fast-changing south Florida landscape through photography and film. Being a 90’s kid, I am attached to ideas of nostalgia and the way things once were. Read more>>

Artists usually have really good vibes. I love learning. I have a special love for real film photography and film movie making- (the latter not practical for cost,) but the aesthetic to me is priceless. Currently, I do digital filmmaking, I’ve produced and now also directing. I’ve produced an award-winning feature film, Decalogue. We filmed this entirely in S. Fl. Read more>>

The goal of the series was to find the most talented young teens to form a band of 5 members and become a musical phenomenon. From the very beginning of the show, the three judges (Ricky Martin, Laura Pausini, and Alejandro Sanz) were very impressed by Alan’s singing and supported him throughout the show. Read more>>

Simon Fevrier

I always feel less stress when I’m painting. At times I can combine all these mediums as well. I get my inspirations from life experiences. I hope people can take anything they can away from my art. As long as it provokes any type of feeling. Read more>>

Peggy Levison Nolan

I have been a photographer for over 30 years, but few of my own pictures hang on the walls of my house. I surround myself with anonymous pictures, family photographs of strangers; most of them rescued from forgotten albums at flea markets. I am hunting for the odd stare. Read more>>
