Born in 1944, Raúl Perez is today one of the top artists of the surrealist movement in Portugal. Linked to the this portuguese movement, and in particular to Cruzeiro Seixas, he was able to simultaneously be included in the group as well as set free and discover his unique signature.

Raúl Perez is however not fond of labels – he prefers to speak of his own process and how he paints first, as a subconscious act that he only comes to realize after it is done. His paintings are dreams – not the representation of them but the actual dreams.
