Lili and Pedro opened Wynwood Blank Canvas Project to the public in June 2015.
"Our idea started when we found out how difficult is for artists to exhibit for the first time in any art gallery. As artists that we are, decided to open a whole new doors of opportunities for artists". Pedro Perez
"A few years early we met each other, but you would not guess WHERE!!! It was my first year of finally putting myself out there to exhibit my art. It was Art Basel week 2012 and I was part of an exhibition in a gallery a couple of blocks away from Midtown shops, and I was so excited to show my art to the public that I invited all my friends and family to be part of the opening of this new chapter. What I did not expect, was to also start a new love chapter, and incredibly impossible to meet him in what today is our gallery. THERE ARE THINGS IN LIFE YOU DON’T EXPECT, BUT THAT MAKES OUR LIVES MORE EXITING! Now we have a family and we are learning everyday to build up our dreams. Blank Canvas Gallery now makes part of the Art World!!!". Lili Botero
