has had a busy year. When we caught up with him last year, the local artist and dancer was break dancing/painting (in one motion) and kicking off The Rise Project
, a youth urban arts program.
Today, we're checking up on Perez, who won a Big Brain award last year for performing art.
1. What have you been up to for the last year?
I have just been making/creating art, running the Rise Project, and performing w/ my crew.
2. What do you want to accomplish in the next year?
In this next year, I am seeking to progress and get better as an artist, not any type of artist but all aound an artist. I'm planning on going to Chicago for the summer and working on art with Chris Silva.
I hope to redefine my art and one day become the greatest artist to come out West Side Phoenix.
