Roberto ‘SEF’ Seminario (Lima, Peru)
The city of Cuzco is embodied by this girl in traditional clothes, worn with pride for her roots. A metallic circle represents the gold of Incan ancestors and beyond, set against a background inspired by the Mountain of Seven Colors. A generous gift from the Embassy of Peru, Cusqueñita is the culmination of a live painting event that took place during celebrations at La Cosecha of the 201st anniversary of Peruvian independence. Roberto Seminario, aka “Sef,” grew up in Peru’s historic Pueblo-Libre district where he started as a graffiti artist.
