Creating Interior and Exterior Murals

My name is Zak Perez, a mural artist based in Orange County. I specialize in creating captivating murals for corporate offices, live art events, commercial spaces, and residential settings. My signature style, known as calligraffiti, seamlessly blends the elegance of calligraphy with the vibrant energy of graffiti, resulting in truly unique and mesmerizing paintings.

“My murals often feature a recurring theme of subliminal messaging. They may seem like just abstract strokes at first glance, but there are hidden messages of hope within them. I view murals as an opportunity to communicate positive messages to all who see them, even on a subliminal level.”

– Zak Perez

About the Artist

I’ve hallmarked a unique style that emerged from my own inner spiritual transformation. It involves blending my original poetry into visual art, utilizing a striking calligraphy style. Alongside this, my body of work also encompasses complex and multi-layered portraits of inspirational figures. These portraits are juxtaposed against newspaper clippings featuring jarring current events. Through this juxtaposition, I invite the viewer to reflect upon what it might mean to create a kinder world amidst our current reality of violence, tragedy, and apathy. It is a thought-provoking exploration that challenges perceptions and encourages contemplation of a more compassionate existence.
