Biography

Carlos Perez was born in 1953 in Los Angeles, CA and is currently living in Healdsburg, CA. Carlos Perez is a quintessential postmodern painter and sculptor who combines the best of Old Master styles, such as El Greco, 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.
