About

Enoc Perez (b. 1967) was born in San Juan and currently resides in Manhattan. The son of an art critic, Perez was versed in art history from a young age. Recurring themes in his art are the nude body, the tropical, natural beauty of his native Puerto Rico, and the gleaming, modernist architecture of Midtown Manhattan, where the artist has resided since 1997. Interested in the optimism of city planning in the middle decades of the last century, Perez aligns himself with the architects of the 1950s and 1960s, stating "I love painting, and I believe in painting, and I share that with these architects who believed in utopia.” Perez began his series of hybrid painting-print canvases with appropriated imagery from paintings by Picasso in 2013, explaining "I always wanted a Picasso, so I made one for my house three or four years ago. Now that I’m 45, I feel like I can go there." Perez follows in the tradition of other acclaimed artists who have created works based on appropriated Picasso imagery, such as Roy Lichtenstein and Richard Prince. Perez creates his collages on the iPad 'Brushes' app, also used by David Hockney in his series of iPad 'drawings.' Regarding his practice, Perez aligns himself with another acclaimed and influential artist: "You have to embrace the technology. Basquiat was out there using color Xerox before anyone else was using it. That's just part of it." Perez's work can be found in the following collections: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; British Museum, London; Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, Florida; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven; New York Public Library; RISD Museum of Art; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Juan, Puerto Rico; Zimmerli Art Museum, Rutgers University; The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Vassar College; Hammer Museum, University of California, Los Angeles; Williams College Museum of Art; Queens Museum; University Museum of Contemporary Art, University of Massachusetts, Amherst; University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive; Picker Art Gallery, Colgate University; Art, Design, and Architecture Museum, University of California, Santa Barbara; Richmond Center for Visual Arts, Western Michigan University; Vera List Center, New School; and the Chazen Museum of Art, University of Wisconsin.
