This weekend marked the opening of the first ever solo exhibition for Brooklyn based street duo Peru Ana Ana Peru. The exhibit showed great pieces full of vibrant colors and textured looks. The art was much more polished than expected, but really looked great and did not lose any of the vibe of the art you may be more familiar with from the streets. Using mixed mediums from photography, to oil paint, to film, the duo showed great detail in all of their pieces without ever losing their edge or inventiveness. The works are being shown at the Brooklynite Gallery through November 14th and really are worth getting over to check out.

The opening reception went off with a bang and had a great turnout. Bombsquad, the musical minds behind greats such as public enemy, were spinning on the 1's and 2's throughout. The Brooklynite Gallery space itself was really a great place to experience any upcoming exhibit. It is situated in the heart of Brooklyn with a great backyard that served to keep the viewing area from ever getting too congested. I will definitely be back for other openings.

Be sure to get over and check out the pieces when you have a chance as I have a feeling this will be a last chance to check out Peru Ana Ana Peru in their beginning stages before they get too big.
