Hailing from Madrid, Jesús Perea is an award-winning painter who also creates these engaging giclée prints. I love the lively combination of color and form in his compositions, achieved through a modern mix of computer graphics, photos, and illustrations. Though the images are largely 2-dimensional, there is much fluidity and movement in Perea’s collages. And while their world is minimal, Perea’s characters appear to be engaged in full-fledged fantasies. The result is work that is both charming and sophisticated. Though reminiscent of both Abstract Expressionism and Pop Realism, the art is still very much of Perea’s own time and mind.
