Welcome to the Art of Johnny Perez where you can find colorful works of fantasy art. Since my childhood I have been inspired by the bright colors of animation and comics. Through the stories I found there I gained a curiosity for the world outside my rural Texas home. My findings are woven within my work. The subtle magic of the watercolor medium veils my subjects. I take what beautiful pieces of the world I find, and collect them within the scales of a mermaid, or the curve of a cosmonaut's helmet.
