Stemming from his foundation as a successful architect, Puerto Rican artist Pepe Villegas has deftly utilized his innate creative abilities braced by a powerful dogmatic upbringing to set on a journey of intimate communication and expression; hence suffusing his art with deep-seeded details of innermost feelings.
A graduate Architect from Pratt Institute, Mr. Villegas worked at the offices of renowned
Architect I.M.Pei, and the late landscape architect Bruce Kelly in the early 90?s.
In 1991, a hard-to-resist opportunity landed Pepe on Bruce Weber’s Vogue Magazine 100-year anniversary editorial, a life-changing event that positioned Mr. Villegas among the most reputable agencies in the modeling world.
A self-taught artist, Pepe Villegas creative journey embodies a search, a sublime process of unveiling beauty in the unconventional. He chooses to create a voice; a memory, still or in motion; a way of expression, his own language, by and through his own thoughts; dreams and curiosity.
His work has been featured in The New Yorker, Artforum, Bloomberg.com, Zink Magazine and Londos's The Artist amongst others.
