Dedalo Celebrates 20 Years of Providing Fine Peruvian Artwork

Celebrating its 20th anniversary as a gallery and store in the bohemian district of Barranco, Dédalo Arte and Artesania is considered to be one of Lima’s best shopping locations, and for good reason.  On display and sold here are brilliant, and I mean brilliant, examples of contemporary Peruvian workmanship in a wide range of styles, colors, and media. Although photography inside the gallery is not typically allowed, Aracari was given special permission, as we thought that such an outstanding occasion was something worth celebrating and sharing.

Dédalo’s collection of treasures can only be described as having something for everyone. From pieces that are eclectic to some that are au-natural, to those that are traditional and others that are modern, and even functional work to simply aesthetic pieces, any visitor will find inspiration for gifts perfect for loved ones and friends and of course something that speaks to their own tastes as well.

Each exquisite piece is hand-selected by owner Maria Elena Fernández and featured in one of Dédalo’s many gallery rooms, which are organized by theme and designer. Every wall, floor, nook and cranny holds a hand-crafted surprise waiting to be discovered, yet with beautiful high ceilings, spacious rooms, and earthy patio, this exceptional gallery exudes a vibe that draws you in, makes you forget about your schedule and your worries, and fills your mind with a peaceful curiosity that could easily consume you for hours.

Throughout the gallery, you will find a variety of exquisite jewelry, clothing and scarves, pottery and housewares, sculptures and paintings, furniture and lighting, stationary, and even bonsai trees and terrariums. Yet, despite the assortment of pieces in its collection, Dédalo masterfully organizes and displays its collection in a tasteful yet fascinating way.

The next time you find yourself in Lima, be sure to take some time to explore Dédalo and discover for yourself why this shop has earned such an extraordinary reputation. In addition to being one of our favorite shops in Lima, Dédalo is also a destination site featured in one of our creative, handpicked experiences.
