Tom_Shirk

It was a personal challenge to create an environment that is more than just a stylish boutique hotel or restaurants simply with art.  I wanted to create a contemporary meeting place that had a buzz about it and where people would want to go as a destination for either their vacation, their evening, or special event.

Amauri Torezan


Amauri Torezan (Brazil)  

Torezan is a Brazilian-born painter currently living and working in South Florida. Inspired by representations of the future produced in the Mid-20th century, Torezan developed his unique style creating hard-edged compositions, flatly painted on a variety of backgrounds. In his paintings, geometric and organic forms seem to be floating around each other evoking  a sense of depth, as though the shapes were eternally suspended in space. The  contrasting colors enhance the dramatic and exuberant effect, creating an overall sensation of blossoming and burgeoning life. His influences range from the work of the pioneers of abstract art to Brazilian modernists, not only in the  plastic arts but also architects such as Oscar Niemeyer and  the landscape designer also painter Roberto Burle Marx.  Torezan has  exhibited his work in a number of  museums, art galleries and prestigious Art Fairs, including Art Wynwood , LA Art Show, Parallax Art Fair London and Conception Art Fair during the Art Basel Miami Week. His artwork is currently part of private collections throughout USA, Europe, and Brazil.

Steve Bowersock


Bowersock is a bit surreal, or maybe just a little dreamy; it depends on how you view the work.  Bowersock’s art straddles the new neo-surrealism, surreal and dreamscape disciplines; it is mindscape, or an escape from reality that fosters subconscious exploration.

Paulo Lara


Paulo Lara (Brazil)

The artist and architect, Paulo Lara, has the foundation of his work in the distortion of the drawing with multi-perspectives drawn by hand, without the use of software, using charcoal in paper, then copying it to a canvas.

With light and shadow effects, vibrating colors and an exclusive personality he can reach fantastic effects on volume where everything seems to be moving.

Janet M. Mueller


Janet Mueller’s paintings are bold images created by throwing large strokes of crudely mixed paint at canvases.   Though the images appear to be simple, the meaning behind them is oftentimes complex.  Strokes may represent people; rage circles with wild cases depict the light.

Chris Reichenbaum


Chris Reichenbaum (New York, USA)

I am a mixed-media artist. I use charcoals, pastels, acrylics and fabrics in my paintings. My work is abstract, original and definitely an expression of me. Music plays a large role in all of my creativity and I sometimes name my works after a particular song.  Technique and the finish of my work is paramount.  I photograph my pieces in every stage of creativity, until their completion. It’s great for objectivity, as they say “the camera never lies.”

Alicia Vallejo

Alicia M Vallejo, professional Anthropologist, has found, in art and painting, a form of communion with the environment, with time and with her own experience. Her painting fosters the spirit renewal through works in which color, taste and sound acquire own harmony.

Alicia’s work offers vivid and clean lines with a vibrant and cheerful colors, and daring compositions with contemporary touches in which it is easy to note the influence of Neo Cubism and Pop Art.

In her paintings, we can find a variety of themes such as the influence of the Colombian coasts. The canvases display theexuberance of the human body, tropical fruits like the chontaduro and the watermelon, and fish. She also offers us appropriations of beautiful and well known works of art from the past. They have been recreated, not only from the technique perspective and the overall approach of the themes, but also involve a translation, which is really what makes it innovative. The essence, or what cant be changed no matter what, can be appreciated in a different language, in a different texture, and in a different environment.

Through these paintings, the artist permeates her optimistic vision and invites for a celebration of the simple and beautiful things of life.
