Thought-Provokers: Buckhead

Atlanta 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 in and around Buckhead that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Kilian Fischer

I am a firm believer in self-sustainability as an artist, so my goal is to continue building the company brand to a point where I can hire & collaborate with other talented artists on both my personal films & photography on a regular basis. Because one thing hasn’t changed since High School – I still need to see my thoughts. Read more>>

I photograph people to share their stories. I’ve always been drawn to photographing people because I believe we all have important stories to tell. It’s one thing to take a simple photo of a person, but it’s another thing to photograph them and really capture who they are as individuals. Read more>>

I’ve been into beauty for as long as I can remember. I grew up getting in tanning beds, and when I (years later) discovered the harm I had done to my body, I was shocked. Wanting to make a change, I started getting spray tans or using self-tanners, but the selection of quality tans and tanners available was lacking. Read more>>

Briana Grant

My love for art started in middle school. I picked up a paintbrush and grew my creativity from simple paper and cheap paint. Even though I was confident in my art, I knew I would never be the next Picasso, so I wanted to find a way to incorporate my art and make an actual living with my talent. Read more>>

I am 22 years old and bought my first camera at 20 years old. So I feel like that on its own is the craziest part of my story. Somehow, I have become a professional photographer in a very short amount of time. I had no idea how to even take a photo in manual or why I was buying a camera at the time. Read more>>

I believe that every artist should have their own definition of success. What may be considered “successful” for one person may be completely different for another. Goals play a major part in determining accomplishments as an artist. For example, if I reached a certain goal of designing a certain amount of material, I may consider myself successful. Read more>>
