Tadao Cern

Previously an architect, Lithuanian artist Tadao Cern switched from his former career in 2011 to work on his newfound passion, photography. This led to his series of wind-swept portraits, ‘Blow Job’, a new interpretation of Van Gogh’s self-portrait and a documentary photo project of beach sunbathers called ‘Comfort Zone’, each of which gained considerable attention. The viral success of these projects led to exhibitions across the world; they’ve won numerous photo awards and opened opportunities to create campaigns for many high end brands including Samsung, New Yorker, BMW, Chupa Chups, etc.

 

In 2016 Cern decided to move to a more conceptual form of artistic expression with his newly created projects ‘Black Balloons’, ‘Chromatic Aberrations’, and ‘Adobe Acrobat’.

“I am looking for refinement in something that would be considered a blemish in photography. It’s an extremely rewarding feeling to find beauty in imperfection.

 

I used to be an architect. Then I decided to try something new and switched to photography. After a five year amazing journey, I’ve decided to step out of my comfort zone once again and search for something new.

 

This time I took a brush and started painting. I consider these paintings to be a combination of my two former fortes – architecture and photography.”
