AVA GREY DESIGNS - an Agency of Artists
We are a creative agency and production house comprised of artists, designers and creators with a range of professional backgrounds. As a team, we share the common goal of creating dynamic projects that connect with audiences in authentic and visually impactful ways. Our work adapts multiple facets of urban contemporary culture and landscapes along with natural elements to best t each project’s purpose and design challenge. While our specialties include creating custom designed art installations, sculptures, and murals, our core strength lies in an extensive understanding of design coupled with an unrelenting high standard for quality production.
Caesar Augustus Perez De Arguezo was born and raised in Chicago in the early 80’s, growing up on latino/caribean culture stemming from his father, originally from Santiago, Cuba and his mother, whom migrated to the U.S. from Veracruz Mexico. His upbringing was surrounded by art and literature, coming from a long line of artists and writers from his mothers side. It was in fact his grandfather Ernesto Arguezo that gave him the visual moniker Czr Prz when Caesar was a small child. Czr Prz has now over 20 years of experience in art and design. He’s most known for his large scale street art work around the Americas and Europe. In the end of 2014, Caesar was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma (blood cancer) and was set back for over a year with little travel and even less energy to produce. He beat it at the end of 2015 and since has been working tirelessly to make up for the time lost. He resides in Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, and is a resident artist at Mana Contemporary. He also is the co-owner and design lead of Ava Grey Designs, a design/build rm that has produced work for various clients from Red Bull, Threadless and Zip Car to name a few.
