This July Mills Gallery opens a new exhibition, a visual biography of the life and artistry of Pedro Brull.
Born in Vega Baja, Puerto Rico, Brull started his journey as an artist as an apprentice to well known Muralist Rafael Rios. Brull came to Orlando 20 years ago and brought with him, his strongly accented Puerto Rican Art.
