Pedro Barrios was born in Miami, Florida, and raised in Venezuela until the age of seven. When his family relocated to the United States, he spent his adolescence in Florida and eventually made his way to the mountains of Colorado. At 34, Pedro now has degrees in both Business Marketing and Nursing. Pedro’s work is influenced by the diverse cultures of his upbringing, world travels, and naturally occurring patterns. As a Denver resident and prominent member of the local art community, Pedro’s work has been shown at many galleries throughout the city. In 2013, Pedro and Jaime collaborated on their first mural. Since then, the duo has continued to work together on their intricate murals, brightening the harsh city landscapes. Pedro and Jaime’s work is aimed at connecting with the general public and bringing enjoyment to the masses.
Jaime Molina graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2003. He received a BFA with an emphasis in printmaking. He is very fluent in many facets of art making including multi- media painting, sculpture, printmaking and murals. After graduating he has exhibited work nationally in several states, as well as internationally in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2012. He has traveled extensively through Latin America and had the opportunity to live in Buenos Aires from 2011 -2012. It was there that he began to explore working on large scale murals on the streets of Buenos Aires. The accessibility and ease of working on the street was an incredibly inspiring experience for him. A method which he brought back home upon returning to Colorado. He has since painted many privately commissioned murals as well as publicly funded murals for the city of Denver. He currently resides and works in Lakewood, Colorado.
