Thought-Provokers: North Loop

Houston has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from North Loop that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Lauriston Brewster

Truth be told, I identify more as a “writer” than as a working artist. I majored in English, got a job as a writer, and I started a culture blog to showcase my writing. I designed and built the website myself and eventually taught myself how to use a DSLR to take professional-looking pictures of events and products. Read more>>

I was more of a tomboy when I was younger. Always hang out with the guys, playing basketball in dresses or skirts, and doing dirt challenges. Overall I was pretty much a rough girl. I changed tremendously when I moved to Houston. Read more>>

My artwork is making hip hop music, but it’s just not any music I rap about experiences I had and still do encounter in the streets and the world daily. The reason I do it is to help touch people that are going or has been thru some of the situations I have been in or even for the people that might feel certain feelings that I feel at times. Read more>>

I consider myself the canvas and the artist. Photography, styling, music and creating art are also in the plan of my life goals. I have to learn to focus on one task at a time often times I try to do everything all at once and put pressure on myself whenever I lack in another task. As of now, I’m pursuing modeling, and I’m excited to see where that journey will take me. Read more>>

My approach to design is often that of a storyteller with compositions containing an arrangement of elements which flow in a directional movement for the viewer to follow – similar to reading a story. It is important to me that others will find a personal connection to the design. Read more>>
