Fabian’s powerful and virtuosic oil paintings have won him international acclaim. His reputation and the sheer impact of his compositions have established him as the most exciting figurative artist on the contemporary scene and his massive worldwide success shows no signs of abating.
Born in 1967, Fabian grew up outside Buenos Aires in a turbulent world of political upheaval during the post-Peron military regime. Fabian’s father was the inspiration for much of his work – he witnessed his father’s unorthodox and often difficult life, portraying him in his original paintings as ‘the cool guy’ outside nightclubs and bordellos. The young Fabian Perez was constantly exposed to beautiful women who could seduce a man ‘simply by lighting a cigarette’.
Today we see these ‘ladies of the night’ exquisitely portrayed in many of Fabian’s pieces - memories of his youth and the nightlife he observed. Fabian wishes not to categorise his artistic style as he does not want to limit himself or his artwork. His art is simply the passionate expression of his strong romantic feelings.
