“An independent arts organization for artists, by artists”
I had the pleasure of participating in the Raw Artists NYC Showcase this year as a model. It was my first time attending a Raw Artists event and honestly, your girl was inspired. Sony Hall was filled with talented artists, from illustrators to dancers. Everyone form of art was ready to show up and show out.
Before the start of the show I walked through the main event floor and connected with some of the most talented individuals from all across New York City. As a creative myself, it was so comforting to be surrounded by like minded people who share my same struggles and mindset.
But what really inspired me most about the event was the celebration and support everyone showed for one another within the artist community. We were all cheering each other on, networking and making genuine connections. The showcase really started before the doors even opened.
“RAW is a fun and alternative way for creatives to showcase both to their local community and the world-at-large. We are not your average art show. We are loud, colorful, creative, and all about our artists. We are RAW.”
I modeled for the talented makeup artist, Yuraisi Guzman of Makeup your Life. My look was designed to be elegant and simple. Her range of skills in makeup is what really set her apart. With only three models, she was able to display minimalist to abstract looks. She glued lights to the under brim of a hat in the most fierce way!! It was a pleasure to model for her.
