Cekis career as a visual artist began within the streets of his native Santiago, Chile. He started painting murals in 1992 while still attending in high school. He was deeply Inspired by New York graffiti culture, and Chilean political mural movement from the 70’s and 80’s. By the mid/late 90’s his artwork was at the helm of a new generation of artists from the streets of South America. His murals transcended communities, and helped to create a new popular appeal for street culture in Chile.
Cekis left Chile in 2004 and became an emerging artist in New York City. He realized how new concepts like natural boundaries and social division were affecting him even before this move and how graffiti was intrinsically related to his new alien status and geographic position.
His surreal landscapes rich with natural symbolism and inventive abstraction portray the fruitful tension and fierce interplay of man made laws vs nature’s laws. Cekis’s studio-work and large scale public murals maintain a visual evidence of his Latin American and Graffiti roots while communicating to a universal language of the human experience. His narrative compositions reflect an understanding of supreme interconnectedness and offer inspiring invitations to overcome, coexist and in some cases, trespass.
Cekis also know as Nelson Rivas has exhibited extensively and has participated in numerous public mural projects locally, throughout the United States, and internationally. He has been included in the list of The 50 Most Influential Street Artists of All Time, by Complex Media (2013).
