Enoc Perez, ‘(Lever House) Indigo’, 2011, Lower East Side Printshop

About Enoc Perez

Enoc Perez's vibrantly colored paintings of nudes, still lifes, and modernist architectural icons, including the Seagram building and Lever House, 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 color printing by making preparatory drawings for each color in a composition and using sheets to transfer oil paint to the canvas. However, he has since returned to the paintbrush.

Puerto Rican, b. 1967, San Juan, Puerto Rico, based in New York, New York
