Eric Perna’s blend of found objects dárte and canvas were a standout feature during Art Basel 2013, with his trademark human representation that gives life to the faces in his art. One of Eric’s works, Going Back Home, showcases a few of those who have played an influential part in Perna’s life…it is the artistic manifestation of a tragedy that stuck the lives of a couple that he was close to. Today, his artwork has the distinguished honor of being on permanent display at the Brazilian Consulate Miami alongside other prominent Brazilian artists such as Romero Britto, Patricia Secco, Jade Matarazzo and Carmen Gusmao. Committed to producing all original work, each piece by the artist is a true one-of-a-kind collectible. Perna is represented exclusively by Jeff Mustard, Dir. of Florida Art Brokers; FloridaArtBrokers.com.
