Top 10 NY Artists Now

Uta Brauser, Born 1963 in Munich, Germany

Uta was born with the “curse and blessing” of being a divine channel of the creative forces. She works multidisciplinarily, including in sculpture, drawing, fashion and action art. She says that her work is about “Our obsession with us, the human, and our social and political interactions.” Currently living and working in New York City and Brooklyn, she claims that being a creator and remaining an objective viewer is one of her biggest challenges. She is currently working on drawing new forms dimensionally, resuming her sculptural work after a ten year break, community interactions through art and creativity, and wearable art fashion projects.
Eventually, she is planning to put out two film projects.

A versatile artist, creating street graffiti murals as well as Old Master-inspired canal scenes from 17th century Venice, Makela stumbled upon what might be his signature works – cityscape collages with a modern twist.
