BLAKEY ROSS from PERU

Having traveled and lived abroad for numerous years and for the longest period of time in Lima, Peru, Blakey Ross’s geographical and cultural surroundings have deeply molded and cultivated who she is as an artist today. Creatively applying various media to her artwork she crafts one-of-a-kind pieces that represent her love for art and life.

According to Blakey, “I am inspired by indigenous and exotic cultures, ancient art, nature, blended with Post-Modern Pop and Sensationalist aesthetics. I am extremely grateful to have traveled to beautiful places, and to have lived in some of the best cities in the world, and learned about their cultures. However, I am forever concerned with those who are hungry, destitute, abused, and/or displaced. As much as I am in love with this world and this life, I am heart-broken by all the suffering. Through my art, I try to find a quiet place between these two extremes.”

Art Scene in Peru

For a glimpse of what’s “new” in the Peruvian art world, we travel to Lima – and more specifically, to its historical center and the literary neighborhood of Barranco. This is where talented, yet unrepresented artists get to thrive in the underground scene. It seems like there are music events accompanied by art openings almost every night and in less traditional “galleries” than what might be expected. Nowadays, you can attend a dance party and see up-and-coming artists’ work displayed in many of the city’s abandoned mansions that had previously been left to decay without purpose. An inspiring new restorative trend in Lima, they have now been given new life and a sense of charm that adds even more dimension to their historic architectural beauty.

The current art movement in Peru tends to be a bit rebellious and anti-establishment, but certainly merrymaking, and we’re proud to bring you some of this country’s freshest talent, through our online gallery.
