Cecê Nobre is an American-Paraguayan-Brazilian artist specialized in anthropological works. His style blends Multi-ethnic Diaspora, Ex-colonial culture, Brazilian Tropicalia and Urban Street Art Culture. Cecê’s large-scale murals also reference the works of Kehinde Wiley and the intense colors of classic Impressionism.
Despite his wide variety of influences, Cecê’s style manages to be uniquely his own, while his work often underlines social issues such as the plight of indigenous peoples, the legacy of oppression and human migration of other cultural minorities, populations and subcultures. He is known for his signature look which focuses on the oversaturation of colors, expressive faces, and vivid highlighting and shadowing.
Cecê has been based in Bangkok, Thailand since late 2010 but has worked and painted in numerous countries, most recently in Cambodia.
