About Thierry Perez

Carla and Leo’s World of Dance pops with over 50 vibrant illustrations created by renowned fashion illustrator Thierry Perez. Based in Paris, Perez’s illustrious career has spanned two decades and included artwork for Jean-Paul Gaultier, sculptures for Azzedine Alaia, and illustrations of the Versace Villa in Miami. Thierry’s work has been featured in such innovative and stylish magazines as Harper’s Bazaar, Spur, and Amica Italia. His distinctive artwork has also graced CD covers, calendars, and art books.

Thierry immediately recognized and brought to life Agatha’s vision for a children’s book about ballroom dance that would offer a unique and fresh pop art feel, like nothing ever seen before. Thierry’s artwork in Carla and Leo’s World of Dance brings readers not only into the dance but also into the culture, place, and feel of the dance. Each carefully mastered illustration is a testament to the vivacious dances’ contemporary appeal and, also, to the talent of this innovative artist.
