The “own voice” in the work of Enoc Pérez


For the Puerto Rican artist Enoch Perez, the craft of painting is his means of expression, the one he has known best since he was a child and what allows him to visually explain what he feels, what he cannot describe in words. That is why it is so important for him to have a style with his “own voice”, which has allowed him to stand out as one of the most recognized and valued Puerto Rican artists in the international art market.


In fact, his works are in the best museums in the world and private collections in Germany, Paris and Italy. In addition to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art, in New York; the British Museum, London; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven; the New York Public Library; the Corcoran Art Gallery, in Washington DC; the Museum of Contemporary Art of San Juan and the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico, among others.


“I always see the creation process as my own freedom and it’s something I enjoy doing, so I don’t see it as a job because it’s what I’ve done since I was a child,” says the artist in a telephone interview from New York , where he has lived for more than three decades.
