“Entirely devoted to his work, Gustavo Pérez showed an immediate aptitude from his first encounter with clay and the wheel in 1971.  Over the years, a creator emerged defining a unique style – aim of all artists – but who, not content with that, continues his exploration of new ways, of new creative adventures, and of new technical and aesthetic risks.  Throughout his artistic career, his successes have marked a turning point, a new starting point, but definitely not a finishing point.  Gustavo Pérez is wary of himself confident only in his work.  Not content to use clay, he communicates with it.  As with all true creators, he lives with the fundamental need of permanent movement.”
Alfonso Colorado, Art critic.
