Get to know Jenny Perez:
Jenny Perez is a culturally-influenced visual artist based out of Miami, Florida. With nearly a decade of experience, Perez’s projects span a wide variety of sizes, from massive interior and exterior murals, to gallery-owned series and prints on mixed media, and at-home private collections around the world.
She began her career as an apprentice under such internationally-recognized masters as Romero Britto and Erni Vales which led her to become one of the pioneering artists in the rise of Miami’s Wynwood Art District, playing a key part in the street art movement of the neighborhood. She has worked on product development and in-store visual design campaigns with international brands such as Armani Exchange, lululemon athletica, and Barry’s Bootcamp, and has been featured in international publications including DISfunction Magazine, Latina Magazine, and onCuba for her dynamic, multi-media works.

Get to know Beauty & Brawn:
Lindsey Meyers and Simone Garcia are gallerists, curators and art/event producers who are currently leading the charge in art and mural production, multi-disciplinary programming, arts education, placemaking, creative storytelling, public arts policy and more. As artists, curators, innovators and community activists, Meyers and Garcia believe that growing their curatorial vision nationally and globally is undoubtedly the way to connect art and artists in an authentic and uplifting way. Regardless of where they work, Meyers and Garcia are always mindful about the manner in which they engage and thus ingratiate themselves into the community- for that is the root foundation of Beauty & Brawn’s work in its truest form.
