Shopping Miami Beach Lincoln Rd: Arts Center South Florida: Franklin Sinanan

Franklin Sinanan is a Trinidadian from Toronto, Canada. While on vacation here in Miami Beach he came upon the Arts Center of South Florida. After two six month stints in a temporary studio, he now is in his eighth month of a three year permanant studio space. He values the space immensely for the opportunity to constantly be creating as well as for the exposure he receives from the community and the art based tourists. Sinanan also loves Miami Beach and feels that it is crucial to his creativity. "The energy is here".

Sinanan treats his studio as an installation space, and it is his vision to sell his work as a collection rather than by the piece.
