PETER G. PEREIRA is a versatile artist in Painting, Illustration Performance and Installation Art. After 20+ years in New York, Peter has recently relocated to Delray Beach. He studied at the University of Omaha and Art Studies in Europe and Africa in the 1980’s and 90’s. On his return he was accepted into several prestigious galleries for painting including Timothy Roberts Gallery and Gallerie D’Art Contemporain (to which his abstract work has returned). He has since continued to create across disciplines and notably evolved the Trees of Life Sculpture Multimedia Installation over the past 10 years in New York and toured internationally in recent years (with Figment Arts) bringing this unique Installation Series as far as Geelong, Australia. Based on paintings and drawings from his time in Africa and later Montreal, Peter created the Paradox Box Series of Wrap Sculpture and Painting Performance Series. He also composed an original album for the show, which later was performed off-Broadway. As an Illustrator, his Comic Book Narrative work appears in Strauss News.
