Cekis

Artista visual y muralista chileno, Nelson Rivas “El Cekis”, nacido en Santiago en 1976, comienza su carrera en la misma ciudad transformándose en un muralista desde la secundaria, donde se inspira en el movimiento graffitero neoyorkino y el muralismo de propaganda anti-dictadura de los años ochenta. En el año 2004, Nelson Rivas “El Cekis”, emigra a New York, USA, donde desarrolla sus sentidos comprendiendo el ambiente artístico de esa mega metrópolis mundial y llega a su adultez artística en la meca mundial del “streetart”.  Actualmente, este gran artista chileno tiene su taller y galería en New York.
