Creativity flows in mysterious ways, and the creative process can be filled with vulnerable, intimidating, frustrating and inspiring moments. Add to those challenges the fact that creatives of color often face institutional obstacles and don’t always have the same access to resources, and you can see why making a living off your creativity can seem like a daunting prospect for many struggling young artists.
That’s why Remezcla and Hennessy V.S teamed up on a platform to provide up-and-coming creators with advice and mentorship from more established creators who are paving the way. We tapped four groundbreaking talents to act as mentors across various disciplines: designer Willy Chavarria, artist Patrick Martinez, musician BIA and creative director Diego Moscoso.
