Best known for his paintings of modernist buildings like the UN, Lever House, and the Seagram building, Perez captures the utopian ambitions and optimism that inspired their construction. According to Perez, "Paintings are my movie stars." With his Normandie prints, he draws on personal history to depict the hotel where he first met his wife - a dual purpose love letter to both a significant woman and an architectural landmark. For this special edition, Perez has hand-embellished five of his prints with iridescent paint and glitter.
