The UTA Artist Space will be featuring a politically-based solo exhibition by New York-based artist Enoc Perez opening on May 13 until June 17.
Perez’s exhibition focuses on architectural paintings of United States Embassy buildings throughout the world based on his frustrations of the country’s recent presidential election. His intention was to question how the political landscape has narrowed our relationships with these buildings and how they have gone from hopeful sanctuaries into security bunkers. The art portrays compounds in London, Beijing, Tel Aviv, Saigon and more, all with a sense of anxiety looming from the increased political conflict the nation faces.
Perez was born in San Juan in 1967 and spent his family vacations as a child traveling to museums in different countries learning about the history of art. After getting his master’s degree at Hunter College, he has had his work displayed at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the British Museum in London and many, many more galleries, universities and art centers around the world.
The exhibition will be held at the UTA Artist Space, which is known for showcasing art talent from around the world and helping artists gain access new opportunities. Be sure to check out Enoc Perez from May 13 to June 17 at the UTA Artist Space, located on 670 S. Anderson Street, Los Angeles, CA.
