Biography

Carlos Cesar Alves

After a successful career as a Financial Director of GM – Locomotive Division in Brazil, and as a Project Manager for Operations and Technology in Citibank, USA for 12 years, Carlos started his art career September 2006 in a group exhibition at Leiter Gallery at the Design District Miami. His first debut in the art world was a success and all the artworks displayed were sold at the opening.

In June of 2007, Carlos participated in the “United and Proud” exhibition at the Gallery Six Broward County Main Library showcasing the original works of over 50 artists. His artwork "Seasons" was recognized with the Best Mixed Media award by judges Steven Glassman and Tin Ly of the Broward County Cultural Division.

On Dec 1st 2007 Carlos Cesar Alves had his first solo exhibition displaying 20 unique pieces of art at the Avenue Lofts Gallery in Downtown Fort Lauderdale.

He continued participating in exhibitions and since then has participated in 64 exhibitions. In March 2010, he was accepted as one of the featured artists at the Opera Gallery Miami, Bal Harbor Shops. This exclusive Art Gallery also shows in Singapore, New York, London, Paris, Monaco, Geneva, Dubai, Hong Kong and Seoul.

At the Opera Gallery in Bal Harbour his works are displayed among renowned artist such as Arman, Fernando Botero, Lita Cabellut, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagal, Keith Harin, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Miro, Salvador Dali and many others.  

Carlos participated at the exhibition “ ABSTRACTIONS” at the Opera Gallery New York. This exhibition was a retrospective display of the abstract movement from the 1940s through present day. Twentieth Century Masters such as Soulages, Hartung, Fontana, Miro, Arman, and Matta shared the space with some of the most creative contemporary voices such as Rosstar, Bast, Ron English, Gibby Haynes, Saber, Yasmina Alaoui, Carlos Cesar Alves and many others.

Carlos has shown his work at Vertu Fine Art in Boca Raton, Florida, Gab Studio in the Wynwood Design District, Florida, at Pro Arte Galleria in Sao Paulo Brazil, Artserve - Fort Lauderdale, Artblend – Fort Lauderdale and has being accepted now to become part of a exclusive group of artists at the San Paul Art Gallery - Wynwood Art District in Miami. The Art Gallery will display only famous and emerging Brazilian Artists.

His work was selected to be part of Spectrum Art Fair in Miami during the Art Basel 2014.  

Carlos has received numerous awards. He was selected as one of the artist showcased in 2009 by Florida International Magazine for a special edition where they select established and emerging artists in South Florida.

He was also invited by the English Auctioneers Group to participate at the VIP Collectors Cruise on board of the Oceania Riviera. In a project called – “Art on the High Seas,” 1250 art collectors from all over the world were invited to participate in this project that ran from Nov 29, 2012 to Dec 10,2012. The project “Art on the High Seas” became a reality show.

Carlos participates for the first time on ARTBRAZIL 2014 in Fort Lauderdale - FL and received an Honored Mention granted by the Consulate General of Brazil in Miami and ArtServe. On this juried exhibition, there were 200 artwork in exhibition and his artwork “Friends II”, received the first prize as the Best in Show.

Carlos has being accepted on December 1st 2014 as one of the exclusive artists at San Paul Gallery at Wynwood Design District – Miami – Florida. This exclusive gallery display artwork of renowned Contemporary Brazilian Artists such as Gilberto Salvador, Rene Machado, and Rubem Robierb among others.

The Brazilian  Magazine "ACONTECE" published in South Florida will feature Carlo's work on the March issue and the interview show him among the most important names one the  Brazilian Artist Community in South Florida.

The prestigious Luxe Interiors + Design Magazine will feature Carlos as a Style Maker on the first issue of 2015.

Carlos is a self-taught artist who started his flourishing career 7 years ago using mixed media to create colorful, intricate, sophisticated and very engaging artwork.

Aside from being self-taught, Carlos is colorblind, leading many reviewers to describe him as an Experimental Innovator. Carlos believes that because he cannot see color, he can more easily detach himself from certain limitations and experiment with possibilities. Carlos sees in shades of grey and he is clear that being colorblind affects the final result of his work. He says, “the vibrant colors are the easiest to differentiate” but he must memorize each color used in each one of his pieces, and then, when he mixes colors, he must take note of each color code and the quantity used in case he needs to create the same color again.

Carlos is an artist worth following. His unique creations are completely surreal and you as the observer will spend hours admiring the details of the extraordinary work produced by this unusual and gifted artist.

Artist Statement

Carlos Cesar Alves

 

My art embodies my representation of a deeper message using shapes, forms and polished texture to communicate a story.  For me, the canvas serves as both mask and magnifier.  It allows me to either hide inside my psyche, or reveal important elements through brush strokes and layers of paint. 

My work is the reflection of my inner world; what I have seen, what I believe and where I hope to go.  Ultimately, I desire my paintings to speak to the universal dichotomies in our human nature; the co-existing opposites that energetically vacillate between our moments of creation and demise.

I see my art as an imaginative exploration of our human emotions.  So when I paint, I feel myself separate from the limitations of everyday reality.  Restrictions, boundaries and rules disappear as the colors and shapes form images through the autonomous movement of my hands.  This synergy formed by the release of my creative impulse and merged with my artistic application of new materials and textures, results in work that I hope calls to be touched and examined.

The beauty for me of working in Mixed Media is that I get to play with unique materials.  Like an apprentice studying their craft, I enjoy learning the remarkable attributes of each material and then using them to produce artistic designs which reveal my reality, my fantasy and of course my inner smile.

I am humbled and proud to be an artist.  My gratitude for all that has been given me is my motivation to pass on good in this world and the reason why I demand the highest level of perfection from myself.  My hope, my wish, my dream is for people to simply enjoy my art and share that joy with the people in their lives
