Rafi Perez and Klee Angelie / Rafi Was Here Studios, LLC
Owners / Artists
Rafi Was Here Studios is the creative playground for Award Winning Contemporary Artist Rafi Perez and Jewelry Designer Extraordinaire Klee Angelie. The Studio began business in early 2012 bringing art and jewelry to the awesome people of Pensacola FL, and expanding internationally since.
Although Rafi and Klee have been creating art their whole lives it wasn’t until 2012 that they made it available to the public. They have been nonstop ever since.
Forged in the fiery hot sun of the open road, the bitter cold of Chicago snowstorms and the sticky wild swamplands of the Florida Everglades, Rafi Was Here Studios brings its contemporary brand of Art and Jewelry to delight and amaze you. Not to mention, Rafi and Klee are pretty awesome and easy to get along with.
Rafi is an award winning contemporary artist who creates emotionally charged works. He is best known for his use of texture and bold color palates in striking pieces that each has a story to tell.
Rafi is a self taught artist who spent years refining his own techniques and creating a style that is all his own.
He has a unique ability to absorb colors and emotions in a very abstract way and is somehow able to translate it into the high energy fine art for which he is known.
“He is driven to communicate visual qualities of perhaps the external environment which offers us freedom and inspiration as we cope with awesome focal points in the vast open space surrounding our existence. He attempts to show the internal passion of human sensuality that brings quality to our senses stimulating and extending our consciousness elevating life as individuals or sharing space with others around us. Ultimately Rafi seems to convey simple sophistication and intellectual freedom as he uses the visual language to express the human potential.” – Spiros Zachos (PO10TIAL Magazine)
Rafi’s work can be found in myriad of public and private art collections both in the United States and abroad, He currently lives and works in Pensacola, Florida.
Klee Angelie is a fine jewelry artist who creates original signature pieces that have a story and a history to reveal. Using old world techniques and a loving, nurturing approach to the creative process, her pieces posses a rawness and an energy that make them truly unique to her.
The work has been described as contemporary naturalist and wearable micro sculpture.
Coming from a musical background and a passion for harmony and rhythm, Klee has tapped into these themes and translated them into her jewelry creations. The result are pieces that are not only beautiful but have a flow and life about them that is palpable.
Klee was born and raised in Illinois, right outside of Chicago and devoted the majority of her time to music and creative arts in her area.
The hustle and bustle and the energy of the city, coupled with her passion for being creative lent itself to her unique contemporary but organic and original style.
Klee now resides and works out of her studio in Pensacola Fl. Her work can be seen at local markets and galleries and at charitable events which she supports. Her pieces are also available to the worldwide market via her online store.
