AAF CreativeZen was born out of a desire for the local AAF Greater Fort Lauderdale & the Palm Beaches chapter of the #AmericanAdvertisingFederation & Choose954 to inspire and engage with our local creative community.
Every Creative Zen event includes complimentary coffee and breakfast bites before a short inspiring and thought provoking talk during the second Friday morning of the month. All Creative Zen events are free of charge and open to the community, being creative or a member of the Advertising Federation is not required! We hope you find the inspiration you’re looking for through these stories as we did, which is why we pay it back and pay it forward by continuing these events for FREE! #AAFCreativeZen.
This month we are excited to bring you Artist Marco Caridad. Born in Maracaibo, Venezuela, Marco immigrated to the U.S. in 2011. An alumnus of Neptali Rincon Art School and Centro de Bellas Artes de Maracaibo. Marco received his B.F.A. from the University of Zulia and his M.F.A. from The Art Institute | Miami International University of Art and Design. He currently lives in Miami, Florida, with his husband. Previously worked at Istituto Marangoni and Andrés Bello Catholic University (UCAB) as an adjunct professor. He creates works inspired by romantic and existentialist stories in search of universal hope. Influenced by the Latin American culture, Caridad’s works, sometimes abstract and sometimes figurative, maintain a juxtaposition of textures or figures as a poetic reflection of his environment. His works are part of collections in Australia, Venezuela, and the U.S.A. Caridad is an art director at Redline Media Group for the Hard Rock account, and he has worked on projects fo r Lenny Kravitz, Miami City Ballet, among others.
