The artists

Last month, we launched the Art x Uber contest. Riders and drivers from around the country had the chance to submit their masterpieces for a chance to be featured at Destination Wynwood.

The talent and creativity of our Uber community continues to astound us. Here’s a look at the 5 artists whose work was selected.

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.

Her latest solo show Nearly Contemporary is on display at The ArtCenter/SouthFlorida @ Walgreens.
