About the artist: Cekis is a NYC based graffiti artist born in Santiago Chile. He began painting and creating graffiti on the streets in the early 1990s gaining notoriety for his vibrant murals. Cekis is considered to be one of the pioneers of the South American graffiti movement. 

As part of the emerging artistic renaissance that followed, graffiti became a way to form his own distinctly Chilean interpretation of the new influences he was experiencing. Painting in public spaces would continue to direct the trajectory of his career, and in 2004, he left for NYC. While in Brooklyn, his work began to take on a life of its own. Both his studio and larger-scale work often explore the tension between man-made and natural laws, shining a light on both his Latin American and graffiti roots while reflecting the interconnectedness of the human experience. Named by Complex Magazine in 2013 as one of the 50 most influential street artists of all time, he has exhibited in galleries worldwide, while staying true to his first love, public mural projects. 

He has played a vital role in developing Chile’s street art scene, and his work continues to inspire young artists around the world.
