NOE PEREZ (b. 1958)
Noe Perez was born and raised in Falfurrias, Texas. Interested in art from a young age, Perez’s artistic education began in his early teens as he studied with various local artists. Despite his love of art, he chose to major in engineering. Perez earned his bachelor of science degree in civil engineering at A&I University and he continues to work in that field today.
Unwilling to put aside his intense interest in art, Perez has continued to advance his artistic abilities, attending plein air painting workshops with Plein-Air Painters of America artists Ron Rechner and George Strickland. Much of his work is done in the studio from photographs and plein air studies.
Perez believes that plein air painting is an essential exercise for any landscape painter and he paints outdoors whenever possible. He paints the South Texas landscape—dusty terrain dotted with low brush and cactus in bright sunlight—using beautifully realistic colors that are equally muted and vibrant.
Noe Perez is a master at capturing the beauty and essence of South Texas from Corpus Christi to the Rio Grande.
