Omar previously operated Hotei Art Center in Chicago and now brings nearly 20 yrs experience in artist representation and gallery management to m0xy. Having launched his first import/export business at age 19, his experience has ranged from running large-scale events and nightclubs, representing individual artists and musicians, to launching and supporting his own clothing line. An established jewelry designer, learning from his craft from his father from when he was 10 yrs old, Omar understands personally the needs of artists to be successful in their craft. Core to the goals of m0xy, he is the lead in handling the promotion, exhibition and sales, so that artists can remain focused on creating.
Working in conjunction with the m0xy Design crew, Omar’s deep knowledge of resident artists’ abilities will facilitate their participation and collaboration on RFPs, and will influence the direction of grants writing. On the exhibition side, Omar will be handling not only the m0xy space, but also be facilitating resident artists’ and the entire stable of m0xy artists’ exhibition nationally and internationally.
