Charlie Perez-Tlatenchi is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. He works in photography, music and collage to illustrate alternative understandings of cultural authenticity, history and aspiration. Collage is essential as both an artistic process and conceptual framework to reconcile with displacement. It also allows for the combination of images, perspectives and temporalities, constructing a refuge from linear narratives of cultural integration. His work is influenced by the streets of Sunset Park, his Mexican-American sensibility, and underground music aesthetics.
