EnocPerez
Como hijo de un crítico de arte, Enoc Pérez pasó sus vacaciones familiares viajando por museos de distintos países y aprendiendo sobre la historia del arte. Pintor y grabador, Pérez abarca la capacidad de transmitir el placer y la belleza en el espectador. A pesar de que trabaja con una variedad de temas, incluyendo retratos, naturalezas muertas y paisajes urbanos, es mejor conocido por la captura de los ideales utópicos consagrados en la construcción de monumentos arquitectónicos. Con sede en Nueva York por más de una década, Pérez ha pintado el edificio Seagram, edificio de las Naciones Unidas, Lever House, y la terminal de TWA de Eero Saarinen. Él tiene la capacidad de transmitir la belleza y el poder sobre el horizonte arquitectónico de la ciudad de Nueva York, así como las personas que habitan en sus iconos imponentes. Su trabajo ha sido revisado en The New York Times, Art in America, e Interview Magazine.
