Hotel Urbano Featuring William Braemer
Cuban-American artist William Braemer is the director of Miami’s Art Fusion Galleries and the lead curator at Hotel Urbano. A promising artist in his own right, Braemer brings a unique perspective to the art on display at our hotel.
Braemer began his obsession with art as a young man in New York City. Growing up, he was exposed to a great variety of artwork through his father’s job at an art auction house. Braemer moved to Europe and developed a taste for the rich artistic history of Florence.
Braemer ultimately settled in Miami, where he started the Art Fusion Galleries with Jay Jakela. Soon thereafter, he partnered with Hotel Urbano and has brought new work to our hotel every season. Braemer’s abstract, inventive use of colour has been called “exuberant, vibrant and prodigious.” Seeing his work is a must for guests staying at Hotel Urbano.
