In Peru, Jade is everywhere!

Its easy to recognize a piece by Jade in Peru. His images have a very distinct shape and color that help you immediately recognize the work. His latest works are a series of mainly animal drawings called¬† “Animalinando Lima” The drawings, all done in brown paper have a folk like feel that relates to old cultures and art from Peru.

I, again, felt connected to his art, and I loved it even more to see that Jade is creating a series of cohesive work on the street and taking advantage of his streets.  Jade has been making graffiti for 13 years, and he is a very influential force in the street art scene in Peru. South America is thriving with street art and home to wonderful artists like Jade.
