Person on Purpose

BY CECE OJANY
@ VOL 22 ON MAR 04, 2014

Cece Ojany poses the question we always ask but never seem to find an answer to: What is our purpose? She explains how successful we can be by choosing to live a life true to ourselves rather than the life others expect of us. We must work not from motivation, which is finite, but from inspiration, which is always present.

Colors of Passion

BY NITISHA KASHYAP
@ VOL 6 ON DEC 19, 2015

Nitisha Kashyap, an artist with the passion for bright colors, picked up the brush since she was just a young girl. But when she landed on a foreign country with no friends and no idea of how things would be, she spiralled into demotivation and experienced a low point in her life. That was when she met the owner of Jo Art Gallery & Decor who offered her to teach people art, which she accepted with no reservations. She told the audience how we can only realize what we love to do when we have no distractions and only “I” surrounds us.



Art brings joy out of people and Nitisha wants that to be known. In her presentation, she tells how art plays a bigger role in life than just a past-time.

Painting Party Animals

BY DANA D
@ VOL 32 ON JAN 13, 2016

Internationally recognized Miami-based artist Dana Donaty talks about her unique process in creating an intoxicating mix of monstrous party animals and humans on canvas.  Her unmistakeable satirical lexicon is a perfect collision of the grotesque, outlandish burlesque, psychological flirtation and a super charged palette that is like a party about to get thoroughly out of control.
