Don't miss what the Boston Globe calls Perez's "Hypnotic Effect!"
Galería Cubana is pleased to present for the first time the work of Karlos Pérez in the new exhibition Amnesia. Inspired by photographs of times past, his oil paintings form vignettes that tell intimate stories of  unknown strangers and even young Fidel Castro.

At age 26, Pérez's paintings are in museums all over the world including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Bronx Museum in New York, NY, as well as in notable private collections throughout the U.S., Belgium, Canada, England, Germany, Mexico, and Switzerland.
 
His paintings are the backdrop in Al Pachino and Anthony Hopkin's latest film Misconduct.

With a background in photography, video, and installation, Pérez's paintings blur the boundaries between mediums. Fragments of images have been meticulously analyzed by the artist and processed through the filters of his personal experiences.

Family photographs become surreal--somehow absent of any spatial and temporal location. The artist scratches at the canvas, blots on paint, obstructs and interferes with the visual, reshaping the events that had previously been captured on film. The results are enigmatic paintings that seem to have traveled through time to captivate us in the present.
