Cece Carpio uses acrylic, ink, aerosol, and installations to paint everyday people of displaced communities, sharing their thriving presence, dignity, and power in existence. She documents evolving traditions through combining folkloric forms, bold portraits, and natural elements with urban art techniques. Cece has produced and exhibited work throughout the globe and was awarded the Rockwood Institute Fellowship, NYFA Immigrant Artist Fellowship, a teaching residency at Café R.E.D & La Botica Espacio Cultural at Xela, Guatemala, an artist residency with KulArts at SOMA and Asian Art Museum in SF. She has been commissioned by the City of Oakland, YBCA, UC Berkeley, and OMCA. She served as a Public Art Advisor for the City of Oakland and is currently working as San Francisco Arts Commission’s Galleries Manager. She can often be found with her Trust Your Struggle collective, teaching, and traveling the world in pursuit of the perfect wall.
