Pearlman has a long history in the arts. He has produced numerous documentary films, created animations of political cartoons for broadcast television, written screenplays and is the author of the novel “Two to Tango” (Simon & Schuster). His sculptures are an extension of his eclectic and whimsical view of the world. He transforms everyday objects into a new, imaginative form.
