Hollywood’s Thought-Provokers

LA 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 Hollywood that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

By the time I applied to school with the rest of my friends, I was focused on becoming a Cinematographer, because there was no other path that would allow me to so thoroughly explore every possible corner or story that I was interested in. Read more>>

I’m so thankful that we can support local schools and non-profits throughout the year. Creating this business has deepened our ties to our community and created such wonderful relationships with other small business owners, and that perhaps is the best gift of all! Read more>>

I am a French Canadian professional dancer who, after feeling very fulfilled with my career back in Montreal, decided to make the big move to Los Angeles and start all over again at the age of 26. Although I was very happy back home, I wanted more for myself and my career, and I had the specific dream of touring the world with Beyoncé.

Today, after a rollercoaster of experiences and emotions, I’m very happy and grateful to say that I have accomplished just that: I toured the world (twice) with Beyoncé. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with other musical icons such as Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Meghan Trainor, Nick Jonas, and Ariana Grande to name a few.

I think that my story started when I was told that it was perfectly fine to pursue a life in fine arts, but it was just plain stupid to not have a backup plan when it all came crashing in on you. I made it my mission to prove them wrong. Read more>>

I became a musical theater nerd in middle school and followed those Broadway dreams all the way to The University of the Arts in Philly, and then to New York City where I did a lot of weird experimental theater downtown and in Brooklyn, and waited a lot of tables. Read more>>

Sophie Strauss

I make music. I’m a songwriter and also a singer. I don’t like to think of myself as making music with a “message” so much as letting myself write whatever comes organically and then, after the fact, seeing what I might be saying. Read more>>

Saiful Haque

I’ve always had a fascination with art, it has been a way for me to make sense of both the physical world and vivid dreams I would have. As a child, I found reading challenging and gravitated to books with illustrations of exploded views of planes, tanks, cars. Read more>>
