Oscar Fuentes is a performance artist from Miami, and the front man for The Oscar Fuentes Combo, a musical project where he blends his original beat-poetry with a jazz fusion band.
As a community-based artist, Fuentes has been sharing his talents and love for the arts for over 20 years. His style is autobiographical, energetic, and holds rhythmic elements. Always eager to collaborate with local dancers, jazz musicians and filmmakers, Fuentes‘ art form is always taken to a heightened level of performance and awe-inspiring creativity.
Currently, Fuentes is screening an original short film based on his poetry and pentameter flare entitled, Biscayne Blues. The film tells the story of a Miami poet that falls in love with the shadow of death - a raven-haired beauty that lives beneath the waters of Biscayne Bay.

Oscar oversees art related programming such as art tours, art lectures, art receptions, art workshops.
