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.

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.

Broward/Oakland Park | CARLOS CESAR ALVES Studio
2:00 PM - Meet at Carlos Cesar Alves' Studio in Oakland Park.
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.

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.

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.

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.
COCO ALARCON | Peru

that which commonly pervades many religious images, from Catholic
Saints to Greek Orthodox Icons.

AQUILES AVALOS | Chile
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 his paintings he
combines abstract and figurative elements to express is emotions, inner
struggles and own perception of reality, focusing primarily on psychological
themes.
Presenting collages, acrylic on canvas,
The Glamorous Monalisa & Venus IntelectuaLove.
Presenting his most recent series of abstracts.
Presenting his DEVIOUS SAINTS photo series, a free &
curious interpretation between the sacred & the mystic.

Miami area, Ali established himself as a photo artist in South Beach
during the 80's and up to the present.

episode of the CW Network's hugely popular award winning series The
Vampire Diaries and his image Dreams is available at West Elm.
Presenting his photo series, SKULLS.
MARCO BERIA | 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.
Presenting works with an abstract and organic
approach, while retaining the use of a strong, vibrant
palette and clean brushwork
