Carlos Pericás (Palma, 1983) is a nomadic visual artist and photographer who lives and works in a motorhome, in slow but continuous movement.

Carlos’ practice is based on extensive experience in professional photography where he brings his own visual language with a poetic charge to each assignment. His personal work makes the present moment a drift towards the real and the subjective, the incomprehensible and the poetic, that which is difficult to understand. This personal imaginary is a direct reflection of Carlos’ transit and life experience in search of new questions.

His photography focuses on questioning the visible, the ideal and the predictable but also on making visible a critical dimension in the relationship between man, time and globalised consumption.
