Christian Perez-Morin is based in Los Angeles and works in painting, digital media, artist books, and performance. He received an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art and a BFA from Art Center College of Design. Previously he worked as a touring musician and artist assistant for Alex Israel. He is currently teaching at Art Center. In 2017, he was published in New American Paintings.

His most recent body of work entitled The Great American Race consists of an installation, film, and book which explore problematic issues surrounding race, religion, and society's complicity within these systems. He uses auto-racing semiotics and juxtaposes them with linguistic ideas of the human-race. Living in the greater Detroit area during the recent controversial presidential election, the content of this body of work was informed by the social and humanitarian issues taking place in and around the city and throughout the United States.
