Eric Perna, Belly Down, Acrylic
Eric Perna: born in 1975, and growing up in Brasilia, Pernia ‘s experiences seem to steer his artistic creativity toward men and women, common characters found on the streets of Brazil, the penniless man begging for change offering to clean a car window at a stop light, the contradiction and juxtaposition of prostitute transvestites offering their wares to passersby on the steps of a church. And of course, there’s Perna’s unique interpretation of Brazilian culture. The images of people in his works are characters in a visual play that is as pleasing to the eye as much as it also reflects a percolating political undercurrent and social-statement art.
Eric Perna is represented by Rolando Chang Barrero at The Box Gallery in West Palm Beach.
