Zak Perez is on a mission to bring his transformational art to the world, delivering frequencies of love and peace through his artwork. Perez hallmarked a unique style, which emerged from his own inner spiritual transformation, by blending his original poetry into visual art with a striking calligraphy style that delivers his message of peace and love directly to the subconscious via subliminal imagery.
Perez’s body of work also consists of complex, multi-layered portraits of inspirational figures juxtaposed against newspaper clippings of jarring current events, in which Perez invites the viewer to reflect on what it may look like to create a more kind world in the face of our current reality or violence, tragedy, and apathy.
Perez’s most recent work brings his signature style and healing message to the arena of public art via murals that serve to spread the message of love and peace even further.
