Supported by Fabulous MiamiYOMiamiSocialMedia305PARK ProjectYou and I Are Love

Each month, Life Is Art brings the community together at our River Of Art pop-up art-in-public-places show to socialize through the power of the arts with the goal of exposing new artists, introducing new people to art appreciation, providing an inspiring space to make new connections, showcasing local businesses and charities, while providing a fun break during the work week. Tongue and Cheek will be providing complimentary tastings and 10% off dinner after the show! The modest $10 door fee goes to support Life Is Art’s mission.

Art is an inspiring talking point, discussing it is a great way to break the ice. Culture is one of the primary elements that build community and hosting a business networker within an art show is a unique way to encourage socializing.

Monique Lassooij
Monique Lassooij was born and raised in The Netherlands and moved several years ago to Miami, Florida. Her paintings hang in numerous private collections in the US and abroad. Ms. Lassooij finds her inspiration in colors and how those colors affect the subject whether she is painting on canvas, wood or a wall. Her subjects are often not placed within a context-giving background, allowing a single or combination of colors and geometric shapes to illuminate the chosen topic.

Judith Mistor
Ms. Mistor has a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art from the University of Detroit and Marygrove College, and is the Ceramics/Sculpture teacher at a private secondary school in Miami, Florida. She is an associate artist at the Bakehouse Art Complex, also in Miami, and an artist member of the Detroit Artist’s Market. She also has membership in the NAEA (National Art Educator’s Association).

Her work is also in a number of private collections.

Alejandro Cuadra
Alejandro is a Costa Rican born Fine Artist and Graphic Designer who is currently living in South Florida. When he moved to Florida he obtained an Associate’s Degree in Art and Art Education from the Miami-Dade College and a Bachelor in Graphic Design from Miami International University of Art and Design, but to a large degree his education is a self-taught. He is an artist who enjoys working with different media, among them: color pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, watercolor, oil, acrylic paint and photography and digital art. Alejandro currently works as a graphic designer and as a freelance artist and illustrator. His art is a mixture of dreams and surrealistic memories. Alejandro uses art to express his inner feelings through enigmatic images. Among the themes that he prefers to create are fantastic scenes, science fiction concepts, religious ideas, collages, childhood memories, figure drawing, surrealistic landscapes, and artwork of animals and nature.
