Biography from Anita Shapolsky Gallery:
Pérez Celis (Argentina) has always been interested in the expression of the universal dualities of the spiritual and material worlds.  Celis' paintings are powerful statements of life's creative forces at work expressed in elegant, rhythmic compositions of dynamic brushwork and vivid color.

In the 1960's Celis moved to New York, producing work that had a primitive quality, with a strong focus on form and texture.  While in France in the 70's his work developed a more polished look, with cleaner lines and deeply saturated colors, which would become a hallmark of his style.  While he would move to a more painterly approach later in his career, his work would always retain a strong focus on composition, comprised of intersecting planes.  His use of rich materials produces a thick physical world, unparalleled in intensity, with layered and piercing planes in a uniquely interwoven space.  His works transcend their materials and offer a permanent manifestation of the Creative Force.

Celis' public works are featured in cultural centers worldwide and he exhibits extensively in Latin, South, and North America.  He also illustrated Jorge Luis Borges' translation of Leaves of Grass (Hojas de hierba), the epic Walt Whitman poem.  In 2001 there was a Memorial Exhibition of his work, honoring the three women in his life at the Palace de Glace, in Buenos Aires.
