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! 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. Hosting a business networker within an art show is a unique way to encourage socializing. Some events include live performances and other surprises! These shows are also important revenue and help us continue our programs.

Ileana Collazo
I learned all I needed to about creating art as a young girl in my grandmother’s garden—where I sat doing what as an adult I call meditating—that quiet spot became my temple. Today my art includes flowers, bursts of abstracted shapes and colors, geometrical excursions, digital paintings, and GRAMFFITI (the first graffiti made by a grandma, for which I was baptized IC the G.

Aquarela Sabol
Born in 1977 in a small river town in Ohio, Aquarela Allyson Sabol, began expressing and communicating through the medium of painting and drawing at a very early age. As an only child, she regarded art as an intimate personal companion: a simultaneous source of freedom, connection and inspiration to the world around her. Aquarela’s favorite subject of artistic exploration is the human form, full of beauty and flaws. She strives to portray the intangible quality of “ashe” or life essence of each subject to form a connection between the viewer, the subject and the artist. Each piece created is like the ring of a tree, which over time and years of growth, inevitably form the fingerprint of the artist herself.

Chy Tea Shoulin
Born in 1975 in Rockville, Connecticut, Chy Walton is an emerging artist in Miami and has involved himself with many mediums of art. Acrylic is his preference, he also works with charcoal, aerosol spray paint, acrylic oil, watercolor, wheat paste and others. He has exchibited his works in many venues in Miami and is very active in the Wynwood community.
