Thought-Provokers: Central Dallas

Dallas has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Central Dallas that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I always felt that I could help people better than I could help myself. Attended college and studied Commercial Music Business, which showed me the true potential of the music industry. Read more>>

Connecting with people, learning about their lives, and travel have always been the driving force behind my careers. Out of high school, I joined the Army in an effort to help others.

Life has a funny way of presenting your blessings but leaving that job allowed me to clear my mind and focus on my first novel and give me the confidence to start writing scripts and producing original content via YouTube.

I want to say I started underground ballroom performance when I was eighteen. I danced all throughout high school. Then I found out what vogue was, and immediately I was hooked.

The company was the perfect marriage of creative design, marketing, and philanthropy. My mission was to serve women with love and fashion. I started designing clothing for the busy mom who really missed the “single gal” days spent shopping and curating their daily outfits. Read more>>

Romy Suskin

When I moved to San Francisco from Michigan, I started shooting street stories focused on the gender identity movement there.

My message is that yoga is for “everybody” regardless of size, age, or ability. The same goes for naked yoga. When we shed our clothes, we remove a layer of armor, exposing our secrets and inhibitions to others. There is much value if honoring and appreciating our body. Read more>>

Dre – TimeOfDre

I believe that it has become easier to share our passions with others than ever before, but it is a poor mindset that holds us back. Comparison is the thief of joy, and modern-day connections make it easier for us to see what we’re up against. Read more>>

Mitchell Ogiamien

Typically, my story of how I got into photography is more of interest. I get caught up anywhere I see a camera and somehow I end up having access to use the camera at some point. Along the line, while I was working in a telecoms company, I had lots of idle time due to the project closure and figured I could use it to do something. I told my wife about it and she said what about photography, I knocked it off at that instance thinking I never saw myself taking it that far to the point of loving it and eventually making a living out of it. Read more>>
