Noe Perez is a contemporary artist living in Corpus Christi, TX. Noe's artistic education began early in his teens by studying with a local artist and is still going on today. Most recently, he has attended plein air painting workshops with PAPA artists Ron Rencher and George Strickland.
"I like to study the original works that inspire me whenever I have the opportunity. Some of my favorite artists include William Merritt Chase and Joaquin Sorolla as well as Texas painters Julian Onderdonk and Porfirio Salinas. Most of my work is done in the studio from photographs and plein air studies. I believe that plein air painting is an essential exercise for any landscape painter. I try to paint outdoors whenever I have the chance."
Noe participated in the Night of Artists Art Show and Dinner for the benefit of the Briscoe Western Art Museum in 2006, 2007, and 2008. Noe's paintings have been accepted in the annual Salon International show hosted by Greenhouse Gallery in San Antonio, TX in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. Noe's artwork is included in the book Texas Traditions released in August 2010.
