EJ Nieves

For over 10 years EJ Nieves has been a professional artist and social media content creator.   Before going into this career, EJ was a professional educator and taught middle school art in Orlando FL. 


Even though he has founded the now famous NEHS brand and he himself has reach millions of people via multiple social media platforms, EJ remains the consummate educator.  He has taken on multiple apprentices and continues to give them a stage and space under his brand umbrella and learning tree.


Knowing the struggle young artists have to just get their art out there and have a safe place to display and grow, EJ decided to create “The YAK Market”.  YAK! or “ Youth Arts and Krafts Market “ is a safe place geared to give young artists their “where”.  


As EJ says “this I my chance to give kids a platform using the platform God has given me. “ 


Join the YAK Movement!


“Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the bellevers in speech, in conduct,in love, in faith, and purity.”
