"As unforgettable yet controversial images go, it’s hard to top the one made by artist Cedric Chambers."
I’m a Bolivian American oil painter who was born in Denver on June 16, 1990. My father named me Cedric so I would not be burdened with picking a pseudonym. Those who know me best describe me as a sparkling cunning artist with a penchant for gummy bears.
In 2013 I landed a job as the main Digital Marketer for the PeaceJam Foundation, which was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Digital Marketing is an art form in its own right. I built their social media following from 6,000 followers to 1.1 million. I also managed an ads grants account and came up with beautiful campaigns to engage users.
In 2016, I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Painting from Metropolitan State University of Denver, where I learned a lot about art history and art theory. I learned the most about painting through my various apprenticeships and private lessons with master painters such as Felicia Forte, who taught me through online lessons via Skype.
I’ve sold hundreds of paintings and I’ve shipped artwork to nearly every continent. I’m a member of The International Guild of Realism, a meta-modern guild whose global mission since its founding is to “recognize the best realists working today”.
I also own a rescued greyhound named Coco.
