Alberto Cerritos shows his art besides worldwide: known artists Basil Barrington Watson
(United States-Jamaica-), Francisca Blázquez (Spain), Bharat Bhushan (India-China), Alberto Cerritos
(Canada-El Salvador), Pongpan Chantanamattha (Thailand), Christopher Ebejer (Malta), Joaquin Martin Rojas
(Mexico), Hugo Pistilli (Paraguay) and Noboru Yurugi (Japan).
The work of Alberto Cerritos is characterized by its deep expressionism, its totem and accused ancestral. He does not resign to his
roots, deepening in the icon aspects of indigenous cultures, in its geometric
symbolism, interlacing these investigations with a deep and serious investigation of the present
vanguards. His art is a sacred fusion of native, primitive symbols, references to present
geometry, interventions of digital art based on formal structures, in printed
circuits, abstract references, cybernetic human beings, fusions between people and machines, forms that are characterized by their intense profusion of colorful
savage. His art is existential, singular, fruit of his enthusiasm for
life, product of his accentuated romanticism and his worldwide
He is a 'New Romantic`, with shared common political connotations, but,
also, an enthusiastic critic of the mechanisms of power. On other hand his plastic action leads him to coordinate
world-wide encounters of artists, in the aspect to obtain a unit in diversity of
concepts, that produce new theories like Complex Art, that is product of the different artistic attitudes that coexist in contemporary
society. The old schools and the isthmuses lost the force they had at the time of the historical
vanguards, but, on other hand, in the world of today's singularity artists arise who develop specific concepts of art like Alberto Cerritos, Joaquin Martin Rojas with his Eco Global Art and Francisca Blázquez with her spiritual and technological Dimensionalismo.
In Casa do Brazil we will admire along ten days the plastic considerations of this nourished group of
artists, who arose from the International Symposium of Sculpture in
Changchun, China in 2004, Group 21 Plus, which in this occasion is
centered, especially, in painting and sculpture.
