The Upper West celebrates the art of Veronique Periano in a solo show entitled You got me floatin’.
Born in Algiers, Algeria from French parents, Veronique Periano has lived all over France. She spent her childhood and teenage years in Marseille and was drawn to art at a young age. Starting first with arts and crafts, she focused her creative skills on painting in 1992 and has continued ever since.
Periano will be exhibiting work over seventeen paintings created in 2017 and 2018 as part of her solo show. Periano on Upper West: “Upper West is able to mix taste, class, humility, affordability and keeps it relaxing for all. The best place I have seen in L.A. county in decades.” She added that the restaurant had yet to disappoint her. “I am always surprised and pleased by the mixing of flavors and the freshness of it all. It is unpretentious but yet grand. Innovative but yet traditional.” The artist works on her paintings diligently. The next piece is always on her mind. Her art is inspired by her love of colors, nature and the victory over the struggles of life. The painting entitled My House was inspired by the uncertainty of everyday life. As the artist put it, “It is a representation of what may feel chaotic in your life, you will experience the ups and downs. But in the end, you will find a place that you call home, a safe place.” Come meet the artist Veronique Periano on August 26th, 2018. All are welcome to attend the opening reception for You got me floatin’ on from 4-7pm at the Upper West Restaurant located at 3321 Pico Boulevard, Santa Monica 90404.
