Over the past 30 years, the fine lines that separate Miguel Perez Lem’s passions as an artist, creative director, teacher and designer have disappeared to become one fluid identity. Lem’s creativity is fueled by his intense sense of curiosity, resulting in a diverse body of work. One of his mainstays are his photographs printed on metal, a material chosen not only for its durability, but because it allows for manipulation with heat and chemicals.
