Tony "The Bricklayer" Perniciaro

Regional Gallery | August 31 - November 10, 2019


Tony “The Bricklayer” Perniciaro was born in 1917 in Brooklyn, New York. A working class Sicilian-American, Perniciaro found his way to Pueblo in the late ‘70s. Perniciaro was an untrained “outsider” artist who started as a poet, eventually integrating drawings and color into his politically and socially charged poetry. Perniciaro’s drawings and paintings are an impressive mix of naivete and sophistication.
