Born in 1967 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Enoc Perez is a New York based contemporary artist. Known primarily for his modernist architecture paintings, his oeuvre includes many landmark buildings from his native Puerto Rico to his adopted city of New York. Beyond architecture, Perez has tackled a variety of other subject matters including vibrantly colored paintings of nudes, still lifes, cut-out photographs and abstract sculptures. Enoc Perez’s work belongs to leading international museums and institutions such as the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the British Museum in London among others, as well as major private collections. He has been featured in numerous publications including NY Times, Wall Street Journal, and Vogue.
