Nilton Cardenas maintains a passion for telling the story of his country’s culture through his art. The use of color in his large murals reflects his experience and perspective of life in his native Peru where traditions are the standards of beauty.
Nilton was born and raised in Lima, Peru. At the age of 20, he and his family immigrated to Florida, later settling in Providence, Rhode Island. Nilton studied journalism at the University of San Martin de Porres and Painting at the Institute Superior Jose Sabogal in Lima, Peru. He has exhibited his artwork nationally and internationally.
