The talent and creativity of our Uber community continues to astound us. Here’s a look at the 5 artists whose work was selected.
Dan Alva, an American artist, comes from a background of Spanish fine artists. Based in Miami, his works are a hybrid of mixed media and pop culture influences, often with subversive undertones. Dan has been working as a creative in advertising for more than 15 years, and much of his work is inspired by his experiences in the industry.
Tim Kent received a BFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2014. His work has been featured in New American Paintings, at Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art and The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia. This year, Tim completed an Alumni Atelier Artist Residency, in which he created a 13-foot shaped canvas installation for his alma mater.
Adam Fujita is a product designer and artist living and working in Brooklyn. He holds an MFA in Product Design from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Through his work, Adam is constantly investigating the role that products and services play in our personal and public lives. Adam has a 25-year history writing graffiti, but he has only recently ventured into the world of street art.
Yuniel Espinosa is an award-winning painter and photographer, as well as an active Uber driver-partner. Born in Havana, Cuba, Yuniel fled his native country in 2007 for South Florida, where he now resides and works. Yuniel holds a PhD in Visual Arts from the Universidad de Ciencias Pedagógicas de La Habana. Through this work he addresses both societal problems and the human condition via composition and color.
