The Artists

We've invited artists of many mediums to showcase their work. It is CAfED’s desire to help our visitors experience the richness of cultural diversity in the artistic world of New York City. Visit each of their pages to learn more.

Gathering the artists

Carefully curated by Nelson Soto

To make a difference in the art world, I select quality artists, creating exhibitions, bringing together a collective of visual, musical, theatrical artists and designers who draw from their cultural roots to tell their untold stories for you to discover at our shows and through our social media. This collective invites you to bear witness to their stories and culture as expressed through art. It is our vision to empower people to better understand and appreciate our talent, skill, and who we are.
