Perejaume began his artistic career in the late seventies, and became associated with avant-garde movements such as Dada, Surrealism and Conceptual art, and also to Romanticism and nineteenth century Catalan landscape painting. Joan Miró, Brossa, J.V. Foix, Verdaguer, popular culture in the Maresme area and the farming world are some of the influences that inspire him. His artistic production and his writing are inseparably intertwined, and have gradually given rise to a poetics of infinite metaphoric resonances in which painting coexists with photography, sculpture, words, action, video and sound.

In 2005, he won the Generalitat de Catalunya’s Premi Nacional d’Arts Visuals, and the following year he won the Spanish Ministry of Culture's Premio Nacional de Artes Plásticas. His books include: Ludwig-Jujol (1989), Què és el collage sinó acostar soledats (1989), Els cims pensamenters de les reals i verdagueres elevacions (2004) and Pagèsiques (2011), which earned him the 2012 Premi Ciutat de Barcelona.
