Jenny Perez is a Caribbean-American painter and visual artist based out of Miami, Florida. With nearly over a decade of experience, Perez’s projects span a wide variety.
She began her career as an apprentice under internationally-recognized painters inspiring Perez to explore her own voice as an artist. Early into her development she quickly became one of the pioneering artists in the rise of Miami’s street art movement. As a self-taught painter Jenny immersed herself in a disciplined studio practice exploring abstract expressionism with notes of pop art, eventually mimicking her paintings onto walls.
In 2014, she was invited to represent Wynwood in a solo-exhibition in Dubai’s very first street art gallery. Perez has been welcomed to exhibit in iconic Miami establishments such as the Delano Hotel, Intercontinental Hotel, as well as a highly anticipated exhibition at the Sagamore Hotel for Art Basel 2017 titled: “Urban Legends” where her works hung amongst legends such as Basquiat, Keith Haring and Banksy.
In addition, Perez has worked on product development and in-store visual design campaigns with global brands such as Armani Exchange, lululemon Athletica, Whole Foods, Barry’s Bootcamp, and Prada.
In 2020 she was commissioned to design a sculpture at Aventura Mall as an ode to her hometown of Miami. This has made Perez the only living female artist with a piece in the collection.
She has been featured in international publications including DISfunction Magazine, Latina Magazine, Lumiere Magazine and onCuba, as well as online platforms for her dynamic, multi-media works. Jenny also dedicates her efforts to giving back to her beloved community by partnering up with several nonprofit organizations in support of initiatives she is most passionate about such as Ronald Macdonald House, Kristi House, No Kid Hungry, Blue Missions and No More Tears to name a few. She is currently looking forward to her new mural project in Wynwood for Art Basel 2021, her next solo exhibition at Miami Beach Botanical Garden in February 2022 and her new partnership with DVCAI as their Artist in Residence for the upcoming year .
