Venessa Monokian's art is by turns playful and mysterious. Learn more about her process and how she used art to overcome a learning disability in this inspiring episode of ArtStreet.
Filmed during the lead up to Art Basel Miami Beach in 2011, Rising Tide is a story about the visual artists who live and work in this emerging art city. Featuring Venessa Monokian, Jen Stark, the TM Sisters, Funner Projects, Brookhart Jonquil and gallery owner Brook Dorsch, this documentary takes you inside the working worlds of these unique creative talents and serves as the perfect introduction to the history and trajectory of Miami's creative development.
Produced, Directed and Edited by Andrew Hevia, Rising Tide is a production of WLRN-TV, and was funded in part by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Often as artists we experience a creative block. Working is typically the best way to move past that. This is a space I (Venessa Monokian) have developed for myself to play and post my results. Here, I abandon the need to construct or work within a larger concept. I thought the title was most appropriate for this form of activity.
