Welcome to the Art of Johnny Perez where you can find colorful works of art. Since my childhood I have been inspired by the bright colors of animation and comics, as well as mythology and nature. Through the stories I find there I nurture a curiosity for the world outside my Texas home. I'm interested in a world that is both culturally diverse and full of mystery and surrealism. I am enchanted by the nature of watercolor and its often unpredictable touches to my work.
Visit The Art of Johnny Perez Store to browse original paintings available.
