Armando Perez Aleman’s contemporary style has emerged from a profound interest in bringing the audience into his mind, heart and soul. Themes in his work allude to elements of his past— water, an intrinsic part of the artists’ life, as well as the artist’s background in construction, the materials he used, their forms and movements. The artist’s work is always guided by a sense of optimism and positivity.
In his “Rumbos” series, Perez Aleman seeks to capture the harmony that symbolically unites an artist with his materials. The resulting artworks are the product of Perez Aleman’s personal experience and speak to the universality of every man’s journey—across cultures, throughout time.
