Fine Art Photographer and Abstract Artist David Perea was born in Arequipa, Peru. Having lived in and traveled throughout many countries, David considers himself a citizen of the world. He is now a California based internationally awarded artist and poet and his artwork has evolved into visionary dimensions that challenge impressions and perceptions of ourselves and of our planet. His passion for travel and curiosity for culture has allowed him to explore our planet through artistic and poetic dimensions.
David has published several multilingual books and ebooks of mixed media, art photography and poetry. David has experimented with several mediums, such as poetry, mixed media, and collage, but art photography tend to be his most preferred medium. Being a self-taught and self-represented artist gives him the freedom to express himself for the pleasure of expression. His artwork aspires to invigorate and exalt creativity as a vehicle to connect to the universe while looking within ourselves. His passion for travel and curiosity for culture has allowed him to explores the concept of surrealism through urban reflections. That exploration can be seen in “Maidens of the World” his latest project that wants to tap the creative powers of awareness and imagination by uniting illusion with reality.
For several years David has contributed to promote, design and market art and cultural exhibitions around the San Francisco Bay Area.

Having lived in diverse countries and having a diverse background makes me feel a citizen of the world and that is why I want to celebrate our planet's diversity through my work. Through photography, mixed media and creative writing, I want to inspire people to travel and appreciate our planet's cultural and natural diversity.
My imagination and raw approach to fine art photography explores our world through aesthetic, holistic and philosophical perspectives.
My work aims to create aesthetically pleasing feelings, animate positivism and creative thinking. I use philosophical concepts to inspire projects of surrealistic art photography that represent the duality of the material world. My works aspire to invigorate and exalt creativity as a vehicle to connect to the universe while looking within ourselves.
