Raphael perez

The artist, Raphael Perez, was born in 1965 and was raised in Jerusalem. He currently resides and works in Tel-Aviv.
Beginning in 1995, the artist's paintings depicted intimate relationships between two people whether man and woman, two women and two men. The entire concept of a relationship and sentiments between two people is brought to light. In each painting there is an evident contrast between shade and light. The color red is central to his paintings and consistently symbolizes masculinity, passion and dominance. Perez uses two primary styles in his paintings; realistic paintings in which red is the dominant color and naive style, which has been influenced by his years working with children Raphael Perez -naive paintings His creations deal with the subject of homosexuality. He puts a strong emphasis on the topics of single-sex families and parenthood, pride parades, male birth giving, portraits, male nudity, as well as male, female and heterosexual couples. His works put to test the boundaries between eroticism and art, while characterizing homosexual relationships and love as they are expressed in everyday life and everyday situations in the kitchen, bathroom, balcony, saloon
