MARCO BERIA
Caracas, Venezuela (Miami)

As a visual artist, I have been ideologically influenced
primarily by the Dada movement from which I have
gained a subtle surrealistic vision. This is particularly
apparent in my still life panel paintings, where insects,
animals and body parts are depicted in a bizarre and
eclectic way, and later in a painting entitled “Spinning
Granny”. These works seek to explore themes of
nature and metamorphosis while utilizing repetition and
movement to create an unreal or sometimes humorous
effect.

In terms of technique, I prefer a minimalist composition
and the use of vibrant, contrasting colors. My
brushwork tends to be very clean, marked by
meticulous attention to detail.

My recent work has evolved into exploring a more
abstract and organic approach, while retaining the use
of a strong, vibrant palette and clean brushwork. An
example of this work is found in” Ivan”, which is a one of
a series of paintings depicting the infrared images of
highly destructive hurricanes.

Alberto RIVAS
Madrid, Spain

Alicante, 31 de marzo de 1978

Soy artista visual; desde pequeño el teatro, la danza, la
pintura y el cine eran los lugares donde quería estar.
Mis comienzos profesionales en el mundo del arte
fueron como actor y bailarín; la plasticidad del cuerpo
humano y su movimiento, el modo en el que la luz
incide sobre un rostro, las sombras cambiantes, el
equilibrio y el desequilibrio han sido mis principales
campos de investigación.

Comencé a hacer fotografías buscando personajes
para mis propias creaciones desde muy pequeño;
siempre me encantó observar a los demás e imaginar
de que modo podían resultar diferentes, más bellos e
interesantes. Siempre he tenido claro que la belleza es
algo completamente subjetivo, los cánones a veces
impuestos nunca me han interesado. La belleza es algo
que viene de dentro y se manifiesta por fuera, un
convenio de luz, energía, actitud y misterio. A mi lo que
me encanta es retratar y pararme a mirar a la persona,
sentirla, estudiar las líneas de su rostro, el movimiento
de sus manos, a dónde mira, su carácter, todos esos
detalles que forman un conjunto y que en definitiva,
jugando a crear, se pueden construir infinitos
personajes. La misma persona puede ser la mujer más
bella del mundo o un monstruo, a mí siempre me ha
interesado buscar y recrear lo que para mí es bello.

Un día descubro que mi base como actor y bailarín, a la
hora de desarrollar una sesión fotográfica, me ha dado
las herramientas para facilitar a la persona que está
delante de mi objetivo que se sienta libre.

Cuando me planteo la creación de una imagen me
gusta estar desde el inicio en todo el proceso, desde el
maquillaje, el estilismo, el concepto, todo ese convenio
de factores que son necesarios para obtener un buen
resultado, soy perfeccionista y necesito controlar hasta
el más pequeño detalle como si de un rodaje
cinematográfico se tratase, este es mi modo de trabajar.

A veces me gusta construir imágenes muy elaboradas
buscando en la fantasía y otras veces me encanta la
naturalidad y que sea la vida la que me sorprenda
desde la verdad. Me encanta tanto el artificio como lo
orgánico siempre y cuando refleje belleza.

MARIANELA HOLLY | Colombia (Miami)
Marianela’s upbringing was amidst walls that were decorated with
copies of Renaissance Period paintings. They awakened a curiosity, and
she was very much intrigued by its perplexities. ¨Nela,¨ is the result of
Marianela’s search to combine traditional art with contemporary
graphics. After working as an artist for over 20 years and falling in love
with Pop Art, she decided to bring back those masterpieces with a
modern edge.

She deeply believes that art is directly associated with the visual
communication. Her art holds unexpected and intricate messages. Color
impressions, great textures, and acrylic paint blend together to create
dynamic pieces. She has created a series of contemporary artwork and
photography, which convey the way she perceives art, and the world.

AQUILES AVALOS
Chile (Miami, FL.)


Originally from Chile, Aquiles Avalos is a self-taught, emerging
artist who showed innate artistic and creative skills at an early
age. In spite of his fascination for the visual arts, he decided to
pursue a different academic and professional path for fear of
the instability that comes with being a working artist.  

In addition, he’s always been interested in social phenomena,
leading him to pursue a degree in Sociology from Brigham
Young University. After moving to South Beach in mid 2015,
Aquiles began to explore art making for the first time using oil,
charcoal, and pastels. In 2016 Aquiles worked as art instructor
at Camillus House, a Miami-based homeless shelter; and
Survivors Pathway, a domestic violence advocate non-profit
organization, where he was able to interact with vulnerable
populations through which he learned about the creative
capacity of those suffering from mental illness. In his paintings
he combines abstract and figurative elements to express is
emotions, inner struggles and own perception of reality,
focusing primarily on psychological themes. His approach is
inspired by the works of Edvard Munch, Roberto matta, Wassily
Candisky, Salvador Dali, Jacson Pollock, Georgia Okefee, and
Francis Bacon.

María Antonia Abad Fernández (10 March 1928 – 8 April 2013) known professionally as Sara Montiel, was
widely considered one of Spain's greatest female film stars of the 20th century: but it is perhaps more for what
she managed, with huge skill, to come to symbolize than for her artistic output that she will be remembered
long-term.

It is true that she was the first Spanish actress to conquer Hollywood in the 1950s, acting alongside Burt
Lancaster and Gary Cooper – and her beauty helped her gain a trail of lovers and husbands that ranged from
Hemingway (who taught her to smoke cigars) to the film director Anthony Mann.

She worked in Europe, Latin America and United States. Her films The Last Torch Song and The Violet Seller
netted the highest gross revenues ever recorded for films made in the Spanish-speaking movie industry
during the 1950s/60s. Montiel's film Variety was banned in Beijing in 1973. She played the role of Antonia, the
niece of Don Quixote, in the 1947 Spanish film version of Cervantes's great novel.

She was portrayed in the Pedro Almodóvar film Bad Education by a male actor in drag (Gael García Bernal) as
the cross-dressing character Zahara, and a film clip from one of her movies was used, as well.


Conocida profesionalmente como Sara Montiel, era considerada una de las estrellas de cine más grandes
de España femenina del siglo 20: el propósito es tal vez más de lo que logró, con gran habilidad, para venir
para simbolizar que para su producción artística que será recordada or mucho tiempo. Es cierto que ella fue
la primera actriz española a conquistar a Hollywood en la década de 1950, actuando junto a Burt Lancaster y
Gary Cooper - y su belleza la ayudó a ganar un rastro de amantes y esposos que iban desde Hemingway
(que le enseñó a fumar puros) al director de cine Anthony Mann.

Montiel trabajado en Europa, América Latina y Estados Unidos. Sus películas
The Last torch Song y The
Violet Seller
anotó los más altos ingresos brutos registrados para las películas que se han hecho en la
industria del cine de habla española durante los años 1950/60. La película de Montiel
Variety fue prohibida
en Beijing en 1973. Ella desempeñó el papel de Antonia, la sobrina de Don Quijote, en la versión 1947 de la
película de española de la novela de Cervantes.

Cuban-American artist Xavier Cortada created art installations in the Earth’s poles to generate awareness
about global climate change: In 2007, an NSF Antarctic Artist and Writer’s Program Fellow, the artist
used the moving ice sheet beneath the South Pole as an instrument to mark time; the art piece will be
completed in 150,000 years.  In 2008, he planted a green flag at the North Pole to reclaim it for nature and launch a reforestation eco-art effort.  Since
2011, Xavier Cortada has based his engaged art-science practice at Florida International University. He serves as Artist-in- Residence at FIU School
of Environment, Arts and Society, the FIU College of Arts, Sciences & Education, and the FIU College of Communication, Architecture + The Arts.

Brazilian Artist
Carlos Cesar Alves is as enigmatic as a painter and he is as an individual. His artistic influences stem from European Modernism and
American Abstract Field Paintings, mainly seen through the large expanses of color which cover great parts of his canvases. Among a plethora of
styles, Carlos is also largely influenced by the Dada movement, as his paintings employ ready-made objects, collage, and assemblage with strong
references to industrialism. As of 2016, Carlos Alves has had over 80 exhibits throughout the U.S and abroad.

LAZARO AMARAL | Miami, FL.
Born in Havana, Cuba, Lazaro Amaral graduated from Parsons School of
Design in New York, where he soon excelled his artistry as a story board
artist. One of the most famous projects he was worked on was the movie,
“Rock of Ages” movie musical version. Amaral presents a vibrant span.
His work has been described as “action panting,” a continual use of
potent colors, hidden images, layering and projecting motion, and life in
each piece.

His work has been linked to Abstract Expressionism. He utilizes 1960’s
Pop icons while commenting on social issues using his unique comedic
tone which he portrays through skillful prints. www.lazaroamaralart.com
