Cindy Lisica Gallery presents a solo exhibition of the newest oil on canvas paintings by celebrated Nicaraguan artist Javier Valle Pérez in Earth, Wind & Future. Known for his marvelous and whimsical gestural style, he creates a symphony of real and fantastic machines for human interaction and travel from planet earth to the outer reaches of the atmosphere and space. His colorful storytelling is a satiating blend of technical accomplishments and dreams of the future. The brilliant, energetic canvases bring thoughtful visual poetry about the past and the future with incredibly varied, yet harmonious lines and color combinations. With his direct lived experience of recent unrest in his beautiful home city of Managua, Javier Valle Pérez sharply conceives a series of spectacular journeys of both child-like wonderment and forward-thinking fantasy. His paintings combine truth, nature and desire in our worlds within worlds. It is an exciting time to welcome the profound and joyous work of Javier Valle Pérez once again to Houston.
Javier Valle Pérez (b. 1973) is a key figure of contemporary Nicaraguan art and an integral representative of Latin, Central and South American art movements in the 21st century. He graduated in 1998 from the National School of Fine Arts of Nicaragua, where he currently lives and works in the capital city of Managua. He has a luminous résumé of more than 70 international exhibitions in galleries and museums and has won several awards, including 1st Prize in the National Painting Competition of Nicaragua. His work is found in a variety of impressive private collections across the United States and all over the world in Germany, China, France, El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and the Netherlands. His spring 2018 duo exhibition “Dream Voyagers” with Angel Oloshove at Cindy Lisica Gallery in Houston was met with great success and high praise.
