Born-and-raised Miami kid James Quinaz is an early riser in the realm of established art. A student at Design and Architecture Senior High (DASH), Quinaz’s art was selected to be featured in the Fuerza Bruta loading dock. Quinaz’s entire life has been influenced by art of all different mediums-from spray paint to film- but from an early age, he knew his biggest passion lay in the world of street art. His work in the loading dock, the entrance for the Fuerza Bruta production, headlines silhouetted figures, and plays on both bright and fading colors. Facial features in the works are powerful and dramatic and the highlight colors mirror and smooth out the image. Quinaz’s career in art is only beginning; after his classroom education is completed, he eagerly hopes to pursue his career in street art and become a professional artist and architect.
