Biography

Mexico City, Mexico, 1975.

This artist places his work on the border between sculpture, monument, architectural model and installation, interweaving a critical reflection on the political, economic and social situation of the Mexican context, while simultaneously generating an emotional contradiction between the strange beauty of concrete, stone, wood and its many tracks, shades and cartographies with a nostalgic and paradoxical feeling.

In collaboration with local artisans, his work is generated from various commissions in which their collaborators carve a series of amphitheaters and stairways in the stones. According to Pérez, the exercise of constructing these representations allows the imagination and reverie to start, since the model and the miniature invoke the creative imagination in those who contemplate and produce them.

Diego Pérez currently resides and works in Mexico City.
