Chris Perez is a Canada-based artist who works with abstract imagery in the exploration of cultural and personal identity. He graduated from the Drawing and Painting program from OCADU in 2012. After graduation, he worked a short stretch with a gallery and artist collective. Perez involves himself in many community arts projects and festivals. Working mainly as a painter, he has expanded his process and medium to involve large-scale murals, and more recently touched on site-specific work.
