Giles Hepplestone of Hepplestone Fine Art in Lancashire explores the background of internationally collected artist Fabian Perez to find out what has made him one of the best selling artists in the UK and beyond.

Named as one of the official artists for the 2012 Olympics and the Artist of the Year for the Italian Academy of Artists 2014, Argentinian Fabian Perez has become one of the UK’s most collected artists.

Although now based in Los Angeles, Fabian Perez was born in Buenos Aires in 1967 in a turbulent world of political upheaval during the post-Peron military regime. Such a childhood could not fail to impact on every area of his life including his artistic ethos, especially when taken in conjunction with his unconventional upbringing.

Fabian witnessed his father’s unorthodox and often difficult life, portraying him in his paintings as “the cool guy” outside nightclubs and bordellos. Fabian’s father Antonio owned a number of brothels and illegal nightclubs in Campana, and was frequently chased and closed down by the police. Nevertheless the young Fabian 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 paintings - memories of his youth and the nightlife he observed.

In his late teens, facing the loss of his mother and shortly after also his father, Fabian Perez set upon a soul searching journey around the world where he met his greatest inspiration, martial arts instructor Sensei Oscar. After spending many years training in martial arts and painting in Venice, he moved on to Okinawa in Japan to continue his journey searching for strength and inner peace. He finally decided to experience a different side of life in the USA, and in Los Angeles he worked as a busboy and a model, and ran odd jobs for Universal Studios. With his days full, he painted throughout the night and considers this the most creative period of his life.

Hepplestone’s are now one of the leading stockists of Fabian Perez’ rare original paintings and also have a year round selection of Perez limited edition prints.
