California artist, Les Perhacs, spent a year at Art Center School of Design before attending Pratt Institute in New York. It was there he studied under Willem & Elaine de Kooning, Buckminster Fuller, and Abstract Expressionist sculptor David Smith. His love of the open spaces of Southern California led him back to the University of Southern California where he studied Industrial Design and Architecture.

Working in stone, bronze and steel, Perhacs is a visionary and a master craftsman.  It is rare for a sculptor working in different mediums to move so fluidly between abstraction and realism.

Over the past 40 years, Perhacs’ works have been shown and collected internationally. He is in the permanent
collections of the State Capitol Museum in Olympia, the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, and the Whatcom Museum in
Bellingham. In 2000, Perhacs earned ‘Master Artist’ honors from the Artists of America. Public placements include the San Diego International Airport and Voorburg in The Netherlands.
