Thought-Provokers: Fenway, Symphony & Jamaica Plain

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 Fenway, Symphony & Jamaica Plain that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Takaris Seales

I wanted to create things that not only showcase someone’s inner and outer beauty but did it in a way where there isn’t a plain white backdrop behind them and someone saying 1-2-3 before the picture is taken. So, I picked up my camera again, started a new Instagram, and began to create for me, regardless of if I thought other people liked it or not. Read more>>

I’ve pursued a variety of artistic endeavors including painting, drawing, collage, performance art, online/interactive projects, and most recently sound art installations/performances. In all these paths, I’ve sought to experience, and reflect back, the world. As fully and deeply as possible. Read more>>

Sabrina Aviles

As a young girl, I always had an affinity for the arts, I loved to dance and draw; I even took classical piano lessons for 12 years. But my true love was acting. When I was in high school, many of my classmates hung out – smoking, partying, and drinking. Read more>>

Art making is my oldest love. I’ve been drawing, painting, and making things since I was first given a crayon. I believe it’s a human need to make things, whether art, craft or just making pleasurable visual choices in daily life. Read more>>

I understood what it felt like to be free with your creativity without judgement. I wanted to study the art of sound and pursue a very open experimental project that played off of these elements. I’m a sonic noise musician! Read more>>

Steve Hare

I have always loved art but never slowed down long enough to pursue my passion. This is my happy place. Whether I’m standing over a blank canvas or listening to what the canvas needs next, all things past and future disappear as I work in the present. Read more>>

I am at the cusp of a recent, abrupt change in my subject matter. I became most known for my figurative work, which depicted both people and animals in resonant landscapes. Well, recent events have urged me in a new direction, but landscape as an element has remained. I was very disappointed with the 2016 presidential election, and I remember despairing for the country and the future of my young daughters at the prospect. That winter’s late blizzards called me outside, and I took walks out into the storms as if I were searching for something. I think the turmoil I felt inside somehow mirrored the natural turmoil outside in those bleak spaces. Read More >>

Petar -Pera Krstajic

I started having interest in bass guitar. After my first amateur gig, when it was the time to carry the gear from a car to the studio, as soon as I opened the trunk a big bass amp fell on my foot and I had to stop my career in tennis. So basically because of that big bass amp I’m playing bass today. Read more>>
