Emanuel Torres-Pérez, (Aguas Buenas, 1988)

His plastic work stands out for a great gesture, a playful to the spiritual world that goes from the tender to the cruel with a marked use of color. This work is nourished, both from literary and philosophical sources and from what he calls "poetry of the everyday."

He currently lives and work as a professional artist, writer and musician in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He has participated in various group and individual exhibitions in Puerto Rico, Japan, San Francisco and Florida.
