He earned his BFA at the Cooper Union School of art and Architecture in New York City.
As an independent artist, Pedro has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows internationally including the Indépendants Salon des Artistes in Paris and El Museo del Barrio in New York.
In his newest project “Ghosts in the Streets” is a series of images accumulated over the years. The photos focuses on the interactions between people and their immediate surroundings.
"It’s difficult the way I experience my photographs, but it always comes back to the fact that I am driven by the need to create images that challenge one’s sense of reality.
The street experience affords us the chance for new beginnings.
I hope that in some way my pictures can help us question and expand our own ghostly visions."
“Most Impressive is the work of Pedro Abreu, a photographer whose images date from the seventies till present and reveal a consistently astute eye for spatial surprises, saturated colors and the hallucionary aspects of everyday life. A prime example is with its overhead view of a man and a woman playing chess and dog on the roof of an New York City apartment building.”
