Perejaume was born in 1957 in Sant Pol de Mar (Barcelona). Since the mid-seventies, years in which he began an early artistic career, he developed a painting of multiple references spanning from Friedrich and the romantic masters in their subject matter (the landscape, the night, the sky, the journey), Surrealism, and the Catalan landscape of the 19th century, in which the role of J. Brossa appears as a determining factor. Already in the early eighties he began to diversify his media through the use of photography, collage and performance, which responds to the mechanics of representation, perception and interpretation of reality.
Painting and landscape become central themes in Perejaume's work, categories on which he displays a double reading: on the one hand, he perceives them as cultural paradigms that condition the way of looking, apprehending and relating to the world of the senses; on the other, he views them as constructions to which he gives an instrumental dimension and, as such, reduces them to their condition as objects, susceptible to manipulation and transformation based on his conceptual interests. In the eighties he defined a repertoire of themes that he maintained throughout his career, reduced in number but complex in their metaphorical declination. Establishing a parallelism between theater and painting, he stages the paradoxes that derive from the semantic diversity that accompanies representation, and where the systematic use of the fragment becomes a key element of his language. With the same relevance as his visual practice, since the beginning of the eighties he has carried out a wide literary production that includes essays, criticism, narrative and poetry.
