Jaime Pérez Magariños Biography

Madrid, Spain, 1957

Jaime Perez is a psychologist by profession, using painting as a contrast with his everyday need for reflection.

Perez paints what he sees or what he imagines, as though they were graphical features, without applying thoughts: impatient, quick, with strong contrasts of color, giving more attention to the overall effect than to the details. The artist uses undiluted oil and a spatula because these allow him to express himself more fully and to achieve special textures. Because of these characteristics, he generally uses large-format canvases that make his work more visible.
