Cecile Perret

Cecile Perret was born in the south of Argentina in 1977, from French and Belgian parents. She lived in several places, both in Argentina and abroad: France, Italy, Belgium. Her partner is Norwegian and
they live splitting their time between Uruguay and Norway. Her whole existence is shaped by this fabulous cocktail of places and people! One thing always remains the same though is that she loves drawing and painting and has been doing it ever since she can remember. Cecile says she is basically self taught, even though she spent some time in a couple of artists' studios, and a bit more in college and university studying graphic design. Cecile has exhibited her work in Buenos Aires, Paris, Milan, San Francisco, Berlin, Porto Alegre, Santiago de Chile Montevideo, Tønsberg, Oslo, and now York. From the white walls of renowned galleries, to the not so white walls of the street. Cecile breathes in inspiration from these two very different worlds. Cecile loves that range and the challenges it brings along, as much as she loves travelling and changing places. Her work is usually developed in series and can fluctuate within different topics. It can even vary a lot from one series to the next, depending on what's going on in her life. "I feel an undercurrent, a red thread bringing sense to the whole as a story, a tale full of symbols and alter egos, about feelings and personal experience."
