Kentucky Derby Festival Poster Artist Andy Perez:
Putting the Pieces Together
Piece by piece, Louisville Artist Andy Perez, brought his vision for the 2021 Official Kentucky Derby Festival Poster to life. Inspired by the iconic image of the Festival’s Pegasus, Perez created an image he calls “Going Up” using collage and mixed media. The brightly colored image symbolic during an extraordinary time. “2020 was such a hard year for everyone. I wanted a piece that looked into the future and a much brighter tomorrow. I wanted the poster to embody that feeling and hope.”
