The twin brothers who work under the moniker “Perez Bros” were first exposed to the car culture of Los Angeles in their youth, and to this day, it informs their collaborative painting practice.

“Their father has been a part of a lowrider car club for as long as they can remember,” their site says. “They are fascinated with the culture, from the cars to the models, from the people to the music. Through their paintings, they try and capture certain moments that they see when they attend car shows. Larger paintings seem to capture the mood and feeling of these car events, while smaller paintings tend to capture more intimate events. Through their paintings, they hope to make the viewer feel as if they were attending a car show.”
