New York Artist, Michael Perez, has quickly become one of the hottest Modern Pop artists today. Always on the cutting edge, his art is extremely dynamic and is distinguished by his use of contrasting colors and shapes. His innovative artwork is most immediately recognized by his distinctive unique faces, flowers and figures.
Michael was born and raised in New York City. While attending school, which included the High School of Art and Design in Manhattan, Parsons School of Design and Pratt Institute, he sold his paintings on the streets of Greenwich Village. After college, Michael worked in the advertising industry, but continued to pursue his true passion… painting. In the mid-1990’s he moved his art studio to the east end of Long Island, to the town of Southampton. Perez then also opened his own gallery to showcase his art. This affords Michael the opportunity to personally meet and interact with his clients and admirers. “People are free in the Hamptons,” explains Perez. “They are away from all the hustle and bustle, playing and enjoying life.”
