Books

Sometimes my ideas want to become a book. So we sit down, have a glass of wine, and discuss serifs.

Short films

My videos are symbolic interpretations of diverse realities that either attract or repel me. They are normally cryptic and short, a cross between experimental film and advertising. I use text, visual analogies, colour, special effects and animation to talk about politics, feminism, the economy, love, revolutions...

Verónica Pérez Karleson

I am an artist with a background as a graphic designer.

My artwork is a kind of visual philosophy inspired by 21st century humanism. It is political and existential, both a protest and a celebration.

I use contradictions as a compositional tool, sometimes literally and other times conceptually. I also like playing with unintelligible messages, partly I enjoy the absurdity of it, but it is also a metaphor for what I don't understand or choose to hide.

I did an MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, where I live.
