Pop art with a twist

Mr. Perez is one of the leading pop-graphic artists in the burgeoning Mission District in San Francisco.  His works reflect on an urban experience, often juxtaposing a wide range of printed elements he finds around town.  These found materials then take a character of their own, once they are transformed into a print screen.  His works are reminiscent of Andy Warhol, but take Andy’s concepts into the 21st century while adding a Chicano twist.
 
 
"I take an image from the media which I manipulate and put in context with another image.  It's a confrontation between two images.  My work as an artist is to make clear what is in between."
