Puerto Rican native Pedro Brull, who has become the father of the diaspora of Puerto Rican artists in Central Florida, will be the subject of this exhibit at Valencia College’s Anita S. Wooten Gallery.
“Brull is a unique example of an artist with a cosmopolitan mind, but with a background steeped in his island culture. This juxtaposition of a freewheeling worldly-wise mindset along with the warm and colorful spirit of a Caribbean islander has been at the center of his work from the very beginning,” says Valencia gallery curator Camilo Velasquez.
Born in Puerto Rico in 1938, Brull graduated from the Puerto Rico School of Fine Arts with a bachelor’s degree in painting and mural painting. A former art director for WKAQ-TV in San Juan, his work has been displayed in galleries, museums and government buildings in the United States and Puerto Rico. He currently resides in Kissimmee, and in 2017, was commissioned to create a mural for the opening of Valencia College’s Poinciana Campus.
