Alex Perez (b.1946)
Born in Santiago, Chile, in 1946, Perez is a fourth generation artist. His father was the Ibero-Chilean painter Eduardo Perez in whose studio he worked and acquired most of my artistic knowledge and skills after graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Santiago.
His Spanish ancestors on his father's side, painters and architects, restored murals and frescos in the ancient cathedrals of 18th century Spain. He inherited his love for music from his mother's family, which included the Philharmonic Conductor Victor Tevah. He sees his love of music reflected in the rhythmic lines and colors of his paintings.
