Emilio Perez with Pace Prints

Artkyle bryantComment

Emilio Perez is an NYC based painter who uses layers and x-acto knives to create fluid and organic compositions that focus strongly on the painterly effects of the brush stroke. 

Often times painting and printmaking aren't 100% compatible as the processes are both very different. What I like the most about these prints, aside from the final outcome, is the process that Perez went through while playing with the technical aspects of screen printing, while still maintaining his own style and approach to art making.

I really love the combination of techniques in this series of mono prints. It makes each print unique and is exciting to see what can be done with different styles of mark making. 

Below is a process video from Pace Prints that goes really in depth as to how these prints were created. 

I'm pretty sure this is the print that was on the table toward the end of the video. Since they didn't show the full effect of what pulling off the masking fluid was able to produce, here is the final result.

I didn't know much about Emilio Perez prior to visiting the Pace Prints website for these blog posts, but I really enjoy his chaotic and fluid style. I think Perez will be an artist that I look into a little more actively.
