Jaime is a lecturer, architect, photographer and artist, who lives in Cochabamba, Bolivia. He is able to integrate all these different disciplines in his art pieces, pictures, research works and books.
We are happy to work together with Bolivian multitalented Jaime Pérez Alzérreca. Today, we want to share with you his artistic face, which you will also see on our web site.
Plastic artist: he studied Art in drawing and painting, at the school Raul G. Prada in Cochabamba, Bolivia. From the earliest years in Art School, his first art pieces were included at the final exhibitions organized by the School.
Illustrator: Jaime stands up to today- as an illustrator of several projects in the Research Institute of Architecture.
He is the creator of the illustrated workbook, LOOKS AT THE 17 OBJECTIVES OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, a product financed by Swedish cooperation.
Architect: he was formed as Architect at the University of San Simón and participates in this process as an illustrator of several projects both academics and professionals, generating large pieces illustrating architectural projects.
Photographer: he worked at Simón I. Patiño Foundation, in the documentation of architectural and historical heritage legacy of the productive and social sector in Bolivia. Until now he is actively involved in several individual and joint photo exhibitions in important art spaces in the city of Cochabamba.
Lecturer: he teaches both undergraduate and graduate careers of Architecture and Visual Communication from the University of San Simón, Cochabamba.
As seen in his paintings, Jaime manages to capture social behaviour signs of his society. To that end, he travels around the country to discover the peculiarities of the citizens and (native) communities in the different public spaces like markets, churches, streets and squares.
It is fantastic the way he found to integrate socio cultural aspects with architecture and art! We will definitely keep in touch with Jaime and come back with more of his unique art.
