Diego Cerero Molina





He was born in Valverde del Camino (Huelva) in 1987. Graduated in 2010 at the Academy of Fine Arts of the University of Seville in the painting section, in 2011 he obtained a Master in Art: Idea and Production at the University of Seville. He has made several solo exhibitions including Recent Work at the Black Cube Gallery in Barcelona, Past-Present-Future at the Black Cube Gallery in Madrid and Identidades Metafóricas in Valverde del Camino (Huelva). He also participated in addition to numerous group exhibitions in his native country including El público y lo público at the Espacio Sótano II, Facultad de Bellas Artes in Seville, IKAS-ART as representative of the University of Seville in Vizcaya, Escuchando el silencio at the Colegio Mayor Maese Rodrigo (Seville) and Riveras del Guadaira at the Museo de Alcalá de Guadaira (Seville). In 2016 he was chosen for the group exhibition Shakespeare in Rome organized by the Galleria Russo in Rome with the patronage of the British Council, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare. He has several participations together with various galleries also at the most important European fairs: XIX Exposiçao Internacional de Artes Ven- das Novas (Galería MN Martin, Badajoz, Portugal), ARTS / artsevilla 2015 (Black Cube Gallery, Barcelona), Arte Fiera Bologna 2015 , Contemporary Istanbul 2014 and Art Factory Catania 2014, the latter all with the Russo Gallery in Rome and Istanbul, with which he has been collaborating on a regular basis for over two years. In his works, Cerero Molina deforms, accentuating them in a desecrating and ironic way, the characters of the characters depicted, emphasizing their expressiveness and gestures without losing attention to the portrait. From his research there is constant attention to the double nature of his subjects, whose involvement in situations and compositions bordering on paradoxical brings out their irreverent and witty character.
