The ATIM Masters Inspiration Award is presented to a professional master artist who has had over twenty years of consistent career success and recognition. The winner of the ATIM Master Inspiration Award is an artist who has been confronted with life-altering situations and has used perseverance, determination, and dedication to overcome obstacles and most importantly, who has reached a global level of recognition and now serves as a role model to give hope and inspiration to other artists.
This year the award was presented to master artist Fabian Perez, one of the most influential and critically acclaimed artist to have emerged from Argentina during the last decades.
Considered by the international media as “the greatest artist of his generation”, Perez is highly collected worldwide. The artist has developed a personal style that he has entitled Neo-Emosionalism which has gained him international acclaimed. He has been commissioned to paint the most influential people in the world among them Pope Francis, the president of Argentina, and most recently Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. In 2016, Perez was invited by Pope Francis to the Vatican and presented personally a portrait of the pope painted by the artist.
Introducing his artistic style, Fabian Perez is predominantly a figurative artist, focusing mainly on the depiction of the human figure and portraying it with technical mastery. In essence, it is a work that focuses on an accurate portrayal of the subject which proposes not only an elegantly structured visual result but also the underlying emotions that play a huge part of his work thematically. It is a work that despite being heavily influenced by the artistic heritage of impressionism, it has managed to be detached and become a unique approach to artistic production, what he calls as “Neo-motionalism.”
