Xavi Ceerre is a Spanish artist born in Alcoy who lives and works in Barcelona. His main medium is painting, but he also uses other languages of expression, such as coding, music, animation or installation.
He feels particularly drawn to the'public space and the way people interact with it, especially games of'children, graffiti and spontaneous artistic expressions found on the streets. He documents these interactions and keeps a personal archive that he consults during his creation process.
Xavi Ceerre has an MA in Painting from Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea University in Bilbao, Spain.
He has participated in festivals like MIRA Digital Arts Festival BCN, LOOM Festival BCN, Ús Barcelona, Urban Skills (Alcoy) or Ex Abrupto (Tarragona).
He was artist in residence at ZAWP (Bilbao), Bilbaoarte, Piramidón Center D'Contemporary Art from Barcelona, Fabra i Coats (BCN) and Nautilus Lanzarote in the Canaries
His work is present in public and private art collections in Spain, Peru, Switzerland, England, the Netherlands and the United States. Among them, it is worth noting the acquisition of a large format painting (5x2m) by the company Bacardí which is currently on display at its head office in Barcelona, Spain.
“As an artist, I prefer to make things happen. My creative process is sort of experimental. I like to act first and think about what happened later. "
