Gustavo Pérez, of Vera Cruz, Mexico, has had a distinguished ceramics career. Before studying art, he was a student of engineering, mathematics, and philosophy, which clearly influences his patterned forms and surfaces. He was recently honored with a solo exhibition, Gustavo Pérez, at Galerie Silbereis, Paris, France; and his work resides in the collections of the Cultural Center of Contemporary Art, Mexico City, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, among others.
