Born in San Josè de las Matas, Dominican Republic, and then relocated to Brooklyn, New York in 1989. These dichotomous cultures have inspired Peralta’s work to blend in a visual language with cultural diversity, which connects his Caribbean past with his urban present.

In 2012, Peralta decided to open his first solo Gallery/Studio “Rigo Peralta Art Studio” in Allentown, PA a block away from his home stating ” My children have grown in this Community and the Community has given us so much, it’s time to give back!” In recent years, he has hosted various free shows, and installations for his Community from artist around the world, as well as his own new work.

Con la magia en mis manos,
from the series
‘Sailing through the Caribbean’ acrylic
Acrylic on canvas 30” x 40” $ available

This piece is like a kind of metamorphic goddess that is born from the roots of our ancestors and a small transformation arises where its skin begins to come to life and becomes the heart of the banana.

“My artwork represents the push and pull between humanity and machinery.  I express this complex relationship with textures and brushstrokes within the human anatomy interlocked with mechanisms of cogs and wheels.  I blend a rich palate of paints drawn from my ancestral Latino traditions to provide a panorama of compositions where classic meets abstract.”

“Justice for the unprotected”
Acrylic on canvas 40”x70” (available )
“Sometimes the Justice hands is tied for the most unprotected, in this piece I wanted to represent how justice is tied by the society.”

Ternura de un poema
Acrylic on canvas 24” x 30” available
La flor del caribe
Acrylic on linen 48”x60” available

“This artistic approach is unpredictable and gives me the opportunity to discover hidden anatomical forms as if a ghost were rising from nothing on the canvas.  I then work to combine the mechanical forms as part of an organic transition.  This final product I refer to as conditioned surrealism.  That is, an awakening of the subconscious as it invites you to explore a series of hidden elements on the canvas that can alter your perception over and over with each viewing.  My hope is for the viewer to become a part of the canvas’ stories in my creations!”
