Cécile Desserle | Figurative painter

Cécile Desserle

Cécile Desserle is first and foremost a pop rock artist: faithful and rebel. Faithful to an ethic based on solid, proven technical roots. Strong foundations which enable this passionate woman to set free a vital drive of colours and sensuality and improvise with rare dexterity and talent.

Cécile, born in 1971, produced her first work when just ten years old. In her father’s ceramic workshop she discovered a world revolving around art. Having resided on the Costa Brava for years, his oeuvre has been praised for conveying rare beauty and serenity, while taking after the vivid luminosity distinctively seen in the art of native mediterranean masters. Romero’s oeuvre has been exhibited with honors across borders in Europe and beyond. Raised in an art loving family, Romero took an early interest in drawing and sketching at school. At 19 he enrolled at San Fernando Faculty of Fine Arts in Madrid where he graduated as a “Licenciado” in sculpture in 1982.

For several years he worked as a nomad street portraitist along coastal locations on the Spanish peninsula and islands while self-learning and further developing his plastic expression skills, until finally adopting pastel as his most favoured medium. Romero settled on Calonge, Costa Brava in 1987 where his art matured to his present luminous mediterranean style.
