Néstor Pérez-Molière was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and currently resides in The Bronx, New York. His practice mainly takes place in the realm of photography (sensu lato), but has also incorporated performance, drawing, video, installation, and intaglio techniques into his works. All of these are used in unison as he turns his camera on himself and delves into self-portraiture, exploring his relationship with his body, body image ideals, and food relationships as subject matter.
He currently pursues an MFA at Hunter College and holds a BSc in Botany. He was part of the Artist in the Marketplace 2017 and Creative Capital’s Taller 2019 mentorship programs, and was part of The Bronx Museum of the Art’s Fourth Biennial. He has exhibited at the Museo de las Américas, the Clemente Soto Vélez, Longwood Gallery, and the Liga de Estudiantes de Artes de San Juan, Puerto Rico. Interested in becoming an educator, he currently teaches digital and darkroom photography, as well as media literacy at the International Center of Photography and THE POINT CDC.
