Making Art New York, Alyssa Monks, Brooklyn, New York
"We need to feel like we belong to this experience, we need to know our place, we need to know where we fit. We need to feel that we're accepted for who we are. So the goal you may think is to, get a show, get press or to make money or to have fame. But it's not, the thing we all really want is to feel connected."

Art is important. It's been the focus and passion of my life. Through the Making Art series I've been able to share that passion with the world. Recently, I became friends with Rob Green, a young entrepreneur from Toronto. We differ in background and experience, but share a common vision. Crafty88 & Making Art have joined forces. Together, we're showcasing today's most influential and exciting artists.
"Resolve" featuring Nicolas V. Sanchez, is the first of seven films resulting from our partnership.
