MONTHLY FEATURED ARTIST – FABIAN PEREZ

Fabian Perez is one of the worlds leading figurative artists who lived an unusual childhood which in turn became subject for his award winning artworks.

Born in 1967 in Argentina. Fabian Perez’s talent was quite obvious from a young age of 9, when he would draw portraits of family and friends. His father led an unsusual life, owning a number of brothels and illegal nightclubs in Campana, Argentina. Therefore, during his younger years, Fabian was exposed to many different and interesting characters which caught his eye, many being elegant and glamorous tango dancers, flamenco guitarists and gypsy musicians. This is where he drew much of his inspiration for his work and produced paintings with a seductive and intoxicating tone.

Fabian Perez lost his mother when he was only 16, and his father when he was 19, this left him wandering aimlessly through a confused life until he found an anchor, Japanese karate master Sensei Oscar Higa, who guided him as a teacher and friend. Fabian travelled with Oscar to Italy where his artist career began.

Between 1987 and the present date, Fabian Perez has been on a journey of inspiration around the globe, collecting creative influences. His real success came in 2001 when two art publishers visited an exhibition of Fabian’s art, and formed a partnership to promote his art and progress his career.

Fabian Perez prints and originals capture a mix of emotions and moods, conveying an idea or a hint rather than providing every detail. Fabian sees his paintings as a way invite people in, to communicate with them. In a similar way to flamenco music, his work has complex rhythms throughout the compositions, the figures, the colours and the techniques.

The five images are an excellent example of the great talent which Jack has taught himself over the many years since being bought a set of watercolours for his 21st birthday. His carrer in art began in 1989 when Vettriano submitted two canvases for the Royal Scottish Academy annual show where both paintings sold on the first day and Vettriano was approached by several galleries following.

The controversial artist has since broken records and seen his most famous original works sold for hundreds of thousands with The Singing Butler being sold in auction for £744,500 which was actually rejected in 1992 by the Royal Academy summer exhibition.
