Carlos Perez was born in 1953 in Los Angeles, and is currently living in Northern California.
Carlos Perez is a quintessential postmodern painter and sculptor who combines the best of Old Master styles, such as El Greco and Jean-Baptiste Grueze, with contemporary imagery and techniques. In the tradition of other self-taught artists, Perez blends a fresh approach to dreamy surreal imagery and is unafraid to incorporate distressed and found materials within his refined intuitive pieces.
He has shown at the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, CA and Publications ARTnews, ARTscene, ARTNow Gallery Guide, California Art Review, ARTnews, L.A. West,Tools as Art, Hechinger Collection, Abrams Press, and ART 7. Perez is in noteworthy collections of Frederick Weissman Foundation Estate LA, CA, and corporate collections such as Gernsbacher & McGarrigile Corporation and Kekker and Van Nest LLP, among others.
