Local Community Curator: Atomik
Atomik is a 100 percent Miami artist. Atomik, trained in graphic design, is a big name in the Miami art scene. The graffiti legend, part of the infamous MSG crew, a group of local graffiti heroes, has been painting the city for quite some time. While growing up in the emerging Miami graffiti scene of the 80’s, Atomik witnessed for himself at a young age what would later become his profession. Famous for his iconic orange character which emerged as a response to the demolition of the Miami Orange Bowl, the artists also marks the walls of Miami with his sleek hand-styles, graffiti and lettering. While painting for almost 20 years, Atomik’s playful characters and hand styles have become as much a symbol of Miami as are palm trees or neon lights. His unmistakable orange character has been placed all over the world bringing a piece of Miami to places such as Chile, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Holland, Germany, Italy, Spain, England, Australia, Korea, and Thailand. His studio pieces on media ranging from canvas to paper as well as found objects like street signs, directly reflect his street work and usually feature his ubiquitous orange character. Atomik currently lives and works in Miami.

Natalie Foucauld aka Le Poodle grew up in South Florida as a first generation Puerto Rican and Haitian American. Her mother put her in art classes from a very young age after a pre-school teacher noticed her drawing abilities and recommended that she hone that skill. Natalie would get bored easily and luckily she was given the opportunity to jump around between music, art, reading, poetry, dance, and sports as a child—as long as she had good grades of course. She eventually studied fine art at A.W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach. It was here where she truly was able to develop her technical skills as a visual artist. She was also able to expand as a person after being exposed to so many different kinds of artistic mediums and peers from many different backgrounds. After high school, she had decided to go on and study nutrition sciences at Florida State University. At this time, she was not painting as often, although if you look at her old chemistry notebooks, you can see them covered in doodles. She moved down to Miami to study at Barry University for physician assistant (PA) school. The intensity of PA school definitely took a toll on her and she was yearning for something to relieve this pressure, yet could not put her finger on it. She realized she was always going to music shows and concerts, supporting her friends and constantly digging and discovering new music. On a whim one day she decided to pick up the guitar and make a song from a poem she had written. Since then she never looked back and proficiently learned guitar, bass, keys and how to record herself at home, while also fronting a band she formed called Cloud Solo. She also goes by her solo artist name, Le Poodle, often. She completed her doctorate in medical sciences this past year, while also working as a PA. Today, she expresses herself through music, art, and other pathways.
