ABOUT

About Sergio Cesario

Sergio Cesario was Born in São Paulo Brazil and currently lives between Miami and Lisbon. His contemporary digital artworks combine photographs of widely unrelated objects, places and pictures to form spontaneous, vibrant and often colorful abstract images. As a technology enthusiast, Cesario first became interested in digital art through his own audio-visual experiences as a teenager, randomly shooting ordinary scenes on a Super-8 cam. 


Cesario is no stranger to both still or motion pictures as he spent several years as a reporter, producing and anchoring the news for different platforms in Brazil and the USA. Many of his graphics ideas were also featured on different shows, including his own segment called Tech-Line for Bloomberg TV Brazil, where his creativity was unleashed in the late 90s, early 2000s. 

Using today’s digital technology (exploring different imaging apps) as his tools, Cesario’s highly experimental style attempts to find a balance between the familiar and the abstract resembling a world of fantasy, realism and contemporary-expressionism. 


He takes inspiration from an ordinary visual world using a process of deconstruction and manipulation of images without particular significance and translating everyday experiences into artwork. While his vibrant digital-generated imagery has many facets, he mostly uses a combination of photographs he has taken himself and remix them with color, scribbles and doodles to create modern abstract figures, almost childlike images that interact with the uncertainties of the real and the virtual worlds we inhabit.

Sergio Cesario holds a Master of Arts degree from the New York University (Broadcasting Journalism). His artworks have been shown in a number of exhibitions in Miami, New York City, and Europe, including the European Cultural Centre's biennial in Venice, Italy.


Cesario is represented by Dr. Milagros Bello, an acclaimed art critic, director and chief curator MIA Curatorial.

ARTIST'S STATEMENT

"Capturing reality and freezing it in time never seemed enough to me. I wanted to transform photographic images into something more meaningful and create an open channel to celebrate freedom and break away from a regressing world. While I make no attempts to distort reality, I do want my works to unveil emotions and transcend from the chaotic and unpredictable world we live in."
