Rafi Perez is an award-winning contemporary artist whose Rogue Artist series is an undisciplined, story-centric, off-beat, and honest approach to demystify what it takes to become a full-time artist in this day and age. He is well known on YouTube and "The Artist Life With Rafi And Klee" Podcasts for talking about artist's mindsets, artist's life, ridiculous art situations, and how to blaze your own trail and blow off the gatekeepers. He also likes taking long walks on the beach and hanging out in his art studio. His art is meant to inspire empowerment, self-awareness, and mindfulness. His diverse collection of work has been described as reminders of personal power and beauty. He is best known for his use of texture, bold color palettes, experimental techniques, and striking pieces that each have an emotional, and deeply personal story to tell. Rafi Perez began creating art as a child by using found objects around his home. He would often get in trouble for using items and surfaces that were not meant for artistic expression. His parents eventually would make sure Rafi had art supplies. Despite maintaining his passion for creating throughout his life, he ended up going into the corporate world to acquire stability and security. He moved up the corporate ladder quickly and realized that he was sacrificing his creative spirit in chasing security. After what felt like a lifetime of being a dependable, responsible, and likable employee, he went “rogue.” He went against all the standards and expectations of him and became the artist he was always meant to be.Read more Read less
