Mid-Wilshire Inspiration

The heart of our mission at VoyageLA is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city. In the recent weeks we’ve had the privilege to connect with some of Mid-Wilshire’s (and K-Town, WeHo, Mid-City) finest artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and rabble rousers and we can’t begin to express how impressed we are with our city’s incredibly deep talent pool.  Check out Mid-Wilshire’s rising stars below.

I’m an artist, designer and all around creative. I work in a wide variety of mediums: drawing, painting, collage, typography… I could go on. I find myself averse to being defined by anyone medium (read: don’t even try to put me in a box!). Read more>>

Shannon Hollander

I loved performing; for literally anyone or even just myself. I’d force my younger siblings to put on productions of Disney classics in the living room. I dragged my parents to county fairs across the state so I could sing and dance. Read more>>

Jess Man

During my last year living in New York City, things got tough and I felt stuck. So much of me knew I was not an NYC lifer, but I stayed in the City for nine years trying to figure it out. Like most people who say, I am figuring it out. Read more>>

Kathryn Chaya Lubow

A Cincinnati native, I spent four years living abroad in Rio de Janeiro and London, until I settled down in LA in 2004. I had PTSD from a near death experience as a passenger in a car that drove off a pier and had been scouring the globe to find ways of healing. Read more>>

Dj Dense

Started Djing at the age of 14 with two guaranteed parties for the year! I became a Dj because I didn’t have great dance moves but I knew what songs would work to move others. Turned that into Djing 5-6 events a week which includes. Read more>>
