Cesar Perez urn

(click to see other side)

Cesar Perez is an artist/designer based in Chicago, whose style is developed from a combination of comic book/representation/graffiti style which can come off as both spontaneous and clean, as he tries to highlight marking gestures in his renderings as well as depth and balance through color and shape.

His urn is covered with swirling colors along a diagonal axis, but the colors are darker and more mysterious than the bright vibrancy of Pablo Serrano’s urn. The lines of color are crooked, sometimes smooth and sometimes jagged, reminiscent of a tree branch or a bolt of lightning. Round shapes resemble multicolored seeds, interspersed throughout the dark chaos. Perez was inspired by the colorful patterns on birds, butterflies, and natural foliage. The sense of movement and shape is represented instead of the figurative animals.
