- Art is about creating a memorable experience. The medium the form, the aesthetic, are all secondary. What matters is the viewer, and their relationship to the work. When you view my work I hope it remains memorable in your mind.
Born into American 1990ís society with no real material problems, Cedric Chambers was given his name so he would not have to pick a pseudonym; it was intended that he become a playwright. The exposure to great writers as a child helped him gain a hatred for fiction, and gain a love for East European philosophers and painters. Cedric developed a surrealist style, his primary medium being oil paints, though he often works in mixed media.
As Cedric aged, he noted that the purpose of education was to learn, to be disciplined. Past the introductory courses, there was nothing more he could learn. Cedric attended Universities, but dropped out half-way through his BFA for painting. He decided that art should be for the everyday person; no one should need a degree to understand it.
Upon entering the physical art world, as a symbol of renewal, Cedric handed out his entire body of work for free. The sketches and paintings of his past no longer holding his stylistic choices back. With little academic training, he became a Low Brow artist focusing on contemporary surrealist large scale figurative oil paintings.
