Luis Peralta Del Valle – The Artist


My name is Luis Peralta Del Valle. I’ve lived in DC since 1985. I moved here to Anacostia in 2008 and
I started seeing slowly but surely the development coming and one of the
things that I was excited about is the new gallery and printing workshop, Honfleur Gallery and Vivid Solutions that were about to open up. Brand new facilities and
you know that’s something that I definitely need as an artist. I specialize in painting but
I’m also exploring public artwork and sculpture, but so far it’s been mostly painting. I
received a 2013 Eastern Distinguished Artist’s Award, that also helped my career get to another level and has opened up on their doors. My favorite thing is the diversity that we have here: religious diversity and multicultural
diversity and just having the opportunity to walk out of my house and
about five blocks from there, I have a really great gallery that exhibits great shows. My son is a big
inspiration to a lot of work that I do and my surroundings. I don’t have to
necessarily look for a place to be inspired. I can just walk out my door and
just be inspired by what I see.
