Item details

10 days, 10 walls and about 10 hours of sleep. "Cholo Gringo" was a passion project where I travelled with Collin Miller (New York Videographer) through Peru across the city and desert painting for pleasure.

"MUYAWASI" or Muya Huasi, meaning approximately Farm Home. This was the first and most important piece as it was at my parents country home which I'd been meaning to visit for 7 years.

International Muralist

Peru is a muralist and graphic artist whose practice is informed by digital and traditional art forms and his 20+ years of painting graffiti. A proponent of the ‘Graffuturism’ movement and avid traveler who has called many cities “home,” Peru’s art troubles physical and temporal boundaries to uncover novel ways of experiencing otherwise unremarkable spaces.
His style is marked by a puzzle-like use of simple geometric shapes, clean lines scaled up to fit any space, and use of primary colours evocative of the simplicity of childhood. Reworking simple and bright graphic elements into complex patterns and meditative murals, Peru’s art evokes a feeling of uplifting wonder.

Ultimately, his purpose is to encourage social change in the form of consciousness-shifting works of art – to create works that communicate the necessity of evolving and rising above our differences by understanding the interconnection between all living things. He continues exploring these themes in his current home of Toronto where he lives with his beautiful wife and kids.

Some of Peru’s corporate clients include Facebook, Nike, Adidas, American Express, Cirque du Soleil and the Marriott Hotels.
