RAUL PEREZ MARTIN (1959)
Raul lives and works in Caracas, Venezuela. His work have received well treatment and recognition in countries like Panama, Mexico, USA, Colombia, Spain, Norway, Netherlands and Germany. Raul artwork is dynamic and challenge perception, the spectator is always surprised to learn that the pieces are painted in one color although visually appear to be two or three color shades.
"When optical illusion and kinetics flourish together magic occurs, and even though there are pieces that transmit more than others, all carry an effect and it makes them show either as painted in three colors or as if they are solid volumes (optic illusion) and also that they appear to move in compliance with the displacement and/or the viewing angle (kinetic effect). To transmit that perplexity is just magical.."
