Fabian Perez


For Fabian Perez the purpose of art is to perpetuate beauty.'That is what I am always striving for. God created the world and embellished it with the wonders of nature.I think it is the artist's job to embellish it with his work' 'I am constantly fighting for a more romantic world, one where the woman and the man have defined roles and power isn't always the goal. I would love to say it is not important what you have but how you enjoy it' Born in 1967 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Fabian had a difficult childhood. His father owned Bordellos and nightclubs, he was also a gambler. To this day, Fabian remembers the police coming to their house looking for his father, who would try to escape through the back door. 'So many times he went to jail, I remember when I was young going to the police stations to look for him''. Eventually, his father gave up the business, lost everything and lapsed into depression. It is the imagery from his past that he draws from his painting, His father being his inspiration. He is the cool guy outside the nightclubs and Bordellos in Fabian's images. And the women are his memories of those that he saw at his father's brothels and nightclubs.

Fabian travelled to Okinawa in Japan, experiencing the delicate nuances of eastern culture, He was heavily influenced by the Japanese painting techniques and after coming back to Los Angeles in 2001 he began his art career in earnest whilst working as a waiter a life model and a working hand at Universal Studios during the day and painting at night. Perez considers this period of his life to be his most creative.

The rest, as they say, is history!
