Thought-Provokers: Back Bay, Beacon Hill, South End

Boston 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 Back Bay, Beacon Hill & South End that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Rob Charlton

I had a bit of an odd route to what I do: I actually took my first classes at an art school (The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston) while I was working in an investment bank. Over several years I transitioned from a full time employee to a full time student. Read more>>

I feel that formative aspects of my background were defined by the transient nature of my upbringing. I’m Japanese but I grew up mostly in other countries, and this has led to somewhat of an identity crisis for me over the years. Nothing unmanageable, but certainly an issue that I have grappled with my whole adult life. Read more>>

Julianne Lesinski

I mean, we could go all the way back to kindergarten here! You know, when arts and crafts was an actual part of our the daily routine. I guess those bits just stuck on me. That instinct to create. Growing up, I always had a disposable camera in my hand. But it wasn’t until after college that I really got into photography. Read more>>

If you want to paint, paint every day, and do it full time. If you don’t take the plunge, it’s impossible. Hunger is the greatest catalyst for business. Read more>>

Madeline Rose Heising

I hit my breaking point while working in TV production. I hated being on the sidelines, and had a hard time concentrating on a creative vision that I didn’t agree with. I quit that job and started doing freelance photography to pay my bills while I figured out my next move, but it wasn’t long before I realized photography was what I should have been doing all along. Read more>>

Cassandra Zampini

I see my work as a means of communicating with others; a way to capture the emotion behind the human story within our urban landscapes, while at the same time challenging the status quo. Read more>>

Erin Constantine

When I moved back to Boston, I found I was presented with a lot more opportunities to take amazing photos. There’s so much history here, as well as so many new and amazing projects popping up all over the city… I just feel that there’s no better way to document these things than through photos. Read more>>

Lacy Kay and The Righteous Liars

Sure, well Lacy Kay and The Righteous Liars is a relatively new band! We only formed in Spring 2017. Lacy is originally from England and had only been in Boston a little while before running into the other band members, Moira, Aaron and Matthew Edwards. We were all working as professional musicians throughout the city, but It was actually at a random impromptu Jam session when we musically collided! Read more>>

Falcon’s Bandits

Falcon’s Bandits was conceived in the darkest hours of many Boston nights. When singer and songwriter Arcadio A. Falcon arrived at the States from Spain in 2014, he became immersed in a journey of exploration into the works of some of the great songwriters of the past. Read more>>

Safiya Nawabzada

I was and still am a weird kid. I’ve always seen the world differently than others as my imagination is my best friend. As one gets older they are told to conform to a certain mindset and way of life without creativity, but that’s not a life I strive to live. I am and will forever be a 5-year-old at heart. Read more>>
