Irene Pérez

Spain Illustration

I’m Irene Pérez illustrator based in Barcelona. Growing up between Ibiza and Castellón I started to develop my artistic personality by studying Fine Arts and Graphic Design in Valencia. When I finished my studies the passion to discover other cultures made me move into different countries. I try to reflect these experiences in my work finding inspiration in folk tales and rituals, mostly from Latin American and Asian cultures, as for example Mexico, Cuba, Indonesia or Thailand.

I also feel a strong attraction by the esoteric symbolism and magic. Myths, rituals, animals, plants, insects, flowers, magic environments, earth, literature, cinema or music are frequent key elements in my work.
