Peru143 aka Peru Dyer

Peru Dyer aka Peru143 is based in Toronto but he has been very active in Montreal on and off. He is mainly known for his murals which are usually commissioned. He has also contributed to projects for En Masse. He sometimes works within Wastoids, an unofficial ‘crew’ featuring his friends Cabin aka Cabe, Fasin and Anode. He also happens to be the brother of Chris Dyer, one of this city’s best known artists. For more information and photos of Peru Dyer’s art, check out and his Instagram page. Older material is still found at his apparently abandoned Flickr and WordPress pages.
