Percy Cannon was born in Lawrence, Kansas to Peruvian parents but only lived there for less than a year. He mostly grew up in Lima, Peru and Buenos Aires, Argentina but also lived in Mexico City and Caracas, Venezuela before going to art school in the United States. Percy's work has been in exhibited in various group shows at different venues in Providence, and San Francisco. He had my first solo show in San Francisco at Chandler Fine Art last September. Percy lives and works in the Bay Area with his wife and daughter.
