Known for incorporating architectural aesthetics into his pieces using defined angles to create stairs, Coby Katz views his life path as a stepping staircase, emphasizing the symbol of stairs to conceptualize the mindset that people can achieve their goals by confronting life’s obstacles in a methodical, step-by-step process. Currently on display at The Sagamore Hotel, Miami Beach’s historic art deco landmark known for its year-round art programming and museum-quality exhibitions, Katz creates an intricately designed mural bringing the viewer inside the painting and into a world of inception. The artist believes it’s critical to his creativity to live in and experience as many different cities as possible;;
