How to Hunt your Own Personal Demons

Jorge Pérez Ruibal

where the hell did i come from

I am Jorge Pérez Ruibal, a 41 years old demonologist and artist from Lima, Perú. Since I was 14 years old, I have had a passion for demons and painting.

I have participated in several competitions in one of the most important art centres in Perú as well in various ones in Bolivia.

Knowing my demons

A brief story about my journey

what is your background?

Having studied architecture and art in Germany has placed me in the unique position to be able to combine multiple cultures in my works. I have continuously developed my techniques and you can follow my progress via my various artworks throughout my 30 years long career. I nowadays work also with various materials such as wax, clay, different metals and woods, plastics and stones. The NFT space is for me an exciting new tool for my digital art and I’m looking forward to it.

Why do you do what you do?

I do it first and foremost because I love it. I used to be interested in an Iranian architect and painter in preschool who painted the bazaar and Persiepolies when I was only 10 years old. It gives me great happiness when I’m able to capture whatever I imagine and/or think of on painting or on a sculpture.

How do you work (create)? Explain in a few words.

My creations start in my head, and then I create the first sketches. I then use those to transfer the creation to the painting or sculpture.

Interview me...

Over time I have perfected my use of the brush and the use of color and shape in the creation of my work. Each time I paint a new piece of art, it's a constant exercise for my imagination and a chance to see what techniques or styles I can apply, I'm always in flux and I like to innovate with new styles.

I like many but feel more identified with: Jan Miro, Vincent Van Gogh, Jane Perkins, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Alberto Giacometti.

"Time" Salvador Dali
And of my works, "Miro" is my favourite so far….

Life itself is a great inspiration, the colors, the sounds, the people I love and the simple fact of walking under the beautiful sky, feeling the wind and seeing all the colors change. That alone and the world of my imagination are enough to inspire me.

There are many happy memories in my life, one of which is when I go on vacation with my family for the holidays.
Also, when I had my art exhibitions and seen people get a good feeling from my art.

What I like most about my work as an artist is being able to show my positive energy. Seeing how people see different points of view or giving different meanings to my works gives me great pleasure.

Funding for the arts is very important for museums, theatres, galleries and arts centers as they can help pay a percentage of their maintenance costs and sponsor emerging artists who wish to make their works known. And good financing creates jobs, encourages spending and attracts tourists. Art has excellent economic effects. Cultural investments are an important engine for urban renewal. In addition to the fact that art communicates part of a country's culture and identity, including its development, social and economic history.

The superpower I would like to have would be to fly because from the top of the sky I will be able to see and appreciate this world from a different angle, but when I paint I already have a different perspective on it this world and in my opinion it is wonderful.

Playing chess is something that relaxes me and that's why I like it a lot.
I also love swimming because I feel free.

I do not like lactose intolerance as it prevents me to enjoy delicious food like pizza.

My dream project would be to paint for the MoMA Museum.

My favorite place are train stations because of all the movement around me.

Never give up.

My professional goal is for my art to be acknowledged worldwide.

"Family, friends and passion"
