Fabian Perez

Biography

Universally acknowledged as one of the greatest figurative painters of our time

Fabian was born in Buenos Aires in 1967. His parents played a huge part in his creative development; his mother was artistic while his father was a fascinating figure - well known locally both to the people and the police as a somewhat clandestine character with a hand in various business dealings that operated after dark in the nightclubs and on the streets of the city.

His father’s life meant that the young Fabian was exposed to a world of sultry and glamorous tango dancers, flamenco guitarists and gypsy musicians, and Fabian’s stunning paintings fall into context as atmospheric representations of unnamed desires. At the age of 16 he lost both his parents and decided to leave Argentina, settling in Los Angeles in Spring 2001. It was here that his work was noticed by the artistic establishment, and before long he was holding sell out exhibitions and publishing his work to great critical acclaim Since then he has published many collectable canvases and three beautiful hardback books.

Fabian’s international status has been confirmed many times, most recently when he was awarded the prestigious trophy for being Artist of the Year 2014 by the Academy of Artists, Italy. He was named as official artist to the 2010 Latin Grammy Awards and the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and has been acknowledged in his homeland of Argentina with a rare government funded public exhibition for the nation - a huge tribute.

He is now one of the world's most collected artists, with celebrity admirers including Sugar Ray Leonard, Shaquille O'Neal and Lionel Messi, Scott Weiland, Shakira, Rihanna, John Bishop, Micky Rourke, Mario Lopez and Megan Fox, singer song writer Juan Gabriel, President of the Latin Grammy Awards Gabriel Abora and President of the American Grammy Awards Neil Portnow.
