Enoc Perez

As the son of an art critic, Enoc Perez spent family vacations travelling to museums in different countries and learning about the history of art. A painter and printmaker, Perez embraces the ability to convey pleasure and beauty on the viewer. Although he works with a variety of subjects, including portraits, still lifes, and cityscapes, he is best known for capturing the utopian ideals embodied in the construction of architectural monuments. Based in New York for over a decade, Perez has painted the Seagram building, United Nations building, Lever House, and Eero Saarinen’s TWA terminal. He has the ability to convey beauty and power upon the architectural skyline of New York City, as well as the people who inhabit its towering icons. His work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Art in America, and Interview Magazine. Enoc Perez’s vibrantly coloured paintings embrace art’s potential for pure beauty and pleasure, as well as its ability to tap into nostalgia. Inspired by Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Jasper Johns, and Roy Lichtenstein’s exploration of alternative techniques of mark-making, Perez mimics the process of colour printing by making preparatory drawings for each colour in a composition and using sheets to transfer oil paint to the canvas. However, he has since returned to the paintbrush.
