His earlier work, using a special marble technique of his own design, involved human figures flowing with rhythm, form and muted colors reminiscent of a neo-classical style. These paintings of muted tone and Renaissance style grace many homes and professional settings, transforming the space.

    Through years spent exploring film, video and photography, Cera’s style evolved and currently involves an emotion driven process of dripping bolder colors across a larger canvas, using the free fall of gravity as a creative tool. The paint, driven by gravity, brings to life the vitality of the figure within, evolving into a neo-expressionism

     Cera was born in Rochester, NY, and received a B.S. from the University of Brockport in Art, Music and Philosophy.  He has also studied Psychology at the graduate level and is a highly trained physiotherapist.

   Cera uses his understanding of the human body and mind, gleaned from his practice in physiotherapy, to give an unusual depth of expression and emotion to the figures in his paintings. He is also a photographer, award-winning filmmaker, and often composes and plays the scores which accompany his films.
