Keep your friends close... and your enemies closer.

No, I am not saying that art is my enemy (in no way, shape or form), however, it is something that is bigger than an addiction. It is larger than something I can even comprehend and most definitely, something I cannot control. I must paint, doodle, draw, anything. So I embrace - everyday. I embrace and develop my thoughts. I fight my own hands and struggle while developing my own skills in order to try to make a visual impact (always with high hopes of bringing a smile to people’s faces). As I create, I become. I am lucky. I am a lucky artist that can express myself and let my own little world come out of my heart, for you to see.


Check me out in action.

Xibie Corea.

Miami local artist, born in São Paulo, Brazil. Moved to the United States in 1993. Got involved with the arts and received her Bachelors in Fine Arts from New World School of the Arts/University of Florida in 2006. Xibie has been working in her field as an art director for many years. In 2003 she joined “Art by Girls”  and that venture happened ‘till 2007, where she curated and managed exhibitions as well as showed some of her own work. Now Xibie is working independently within commercial arts, painting, photography and is much involved with the “blogging” world. Xibie’s main influences are Warhol, Basquiat, Miró and Mackenzie Thorpe (as well as illustrators such as Natalie Dee, Exploding Dog, etc). Oh, and most definitely street art/graffiti and stickers! Being categorized as “pop” as well as “neo-expressionism” artist, Xibie is eager to keep on developing her work while becoming more involved with the community.
