Born in Brazil in 1976, Cleber
Stecei began experimenting
with abstract painting as a teenager. After arriving in the
United States at the age of 19, he became inspired by the beautiful
New England scenery and has since excelled in landscape painting.
Stecei’s work is done both from photographic
references and on location (en plein air), allowing him to
respond to the effects of natural light and atmosphere.
Stecei is a member of the Cape Cod Art Association
and his work has been awarded numerous times, including a Best
in Show. Since showing at the Addison Art Gallery, his work
has enthralled collectors as well as judges and has been featured
in respected regional and national art publications.
“A Master in the Making...represented by one
of the Cape's most prestigious galleries, Addison Art in Orleans.
Cleber Stecei paints weekly with the highly regarded Cape artist
Stecei’s reputation as a
landscape artist has been rising like a mellow tide that
is still building. His work has been noted in several national
art publications and his paintings are in collections country-wide.
Stecei's talent, age, and new presence in the market have
thrust him to the heady upper echelons of the art scene—all
in less than 18 months.”
