Mauricio Madrid – Estudiomau
The yarn goes as follows… Colombian-American painter estudiomau (rhymes with cow ) is constantly bridging the space between conventional 2 dimensional and kinetic 3 dimensional works. The work often welcomes the viewer to experience each piece using multiple senses. His paintings employ layers of colors on a variety of substrates ranging from canvas to reverse painting on clear acrylic panels. He uses his years of experience in various mediums to separate and create multiple planes. The subject matter commonly includes abstracted figurative focal points broken down to organic shapes and forms, depicting images and people he has encountered. He uses the backgrounds to compliment the subject in an expressionist infusion of emotion, color and, texture. Keeping to a maximum of 6 principle colors and mixing and blending on the final painting or surface he creates a palette that reflects the colors that surround him.

Kandayia Ali
Visionary, Self Published Author, Music Producer, Poet, PR Specialist, Ethics Trainer, Personal/Project Management, Marketing Specialist, Event Coordinator- Promoter, Abstract/Surreal Artist, Mom, Motivational Speaker and Community Activist are just some of the titles she’s recognized for holding. There will be many more to follow during her journeys in life. ‘There has been many words used to try to describe me and my style of art, music, ideas, methodologies and literature; honestly there aren’t any available that will give you a true idea of who I am and why I give some much passion and drive to whatever it is I have chosen to create. I have an undying love for all art forms- and I think that those who can use their minds and hearts to bring color and life to the world are phenomenal people indeed. I’m always looking forward to gaining opportunities that will allow me to add my vision and ambitious thoughts as a way of contributing the better parts of me to this world we live in.

Stefanie Caro
Recent graduate of FAU with a bachelors in fine arts. Have been an artist all if my life. Currently reside in coral gables area of Miami. Fl native. My work is never far from the narrative and seeks to raise questions towards our relationship with the natural world.

The Motivational Edge

Ernie Novo
My practice is primarily concerned with universal aspects of the human condition. Statements which hold true to all people anywhere in the world at any time. I am interested in the essence of what it is to be a sentient being so as to inspire greater self-awareness and harmony.

Gustavo Ramirez
I am a self-taught artist that is deeply influenced by the American Abstract Expressionists (Gorky, Hoffman, Pollock, de Kooning, Rothko, and Newman), Post-Impressionist van Gogh and the Neo-expressionists (Guston, Schnabel, and Basquiat). I believe fine art should be available and affordable to the common everyday person.

Jennifer Maria
Jennifer Maria grew up painting and drawing before immersing herself into photography. She intended to use her photographs as references for her paintings, but ended up falling in love with the process of creating and capturing with a camera. She produces mostly digital photography, however, she also delights in creating with black & white film. She happily engages much time, love & care into creating silver gelatin prints in her darkroom. She continues to paint– primarily on canvas, though she also enjoys utilizing the human body as canvas. Jennifer Maria draws inspiration from many sources: her dreams, her loved ones, travels, the ocean and more.

Featured Charity: Art Studio Miami
