Cea’s pictorial work moves between abstract and surreal, depicting dreamlike worlds full of colour in which a calm chaos predominates. His work is made up of exact lines, geometric shaped creatures, machines, patterns with organic shapes and hungry jaws that devour each other. His work is often informed by pre-Hispanic art with its linear drawings, ferocity, focus on nature and at times, horror.
There is something continuous and constantly in motion in Cea's work. He transforms spaces into divergent paths that crash into one another with force and precision. He leaves in his work a type of pictorial geography that leads the eye to both familiar and foreign places. The more the viewer enters into the spaces, the more intriguing the pieces become. The tangle of colour and form spreads across the canvas and reveals its aesthetic dissonance along with the secrets it holds. Cea's surrealist scenes are a disordered alternative to normality blended together with his lived experiences. Every piece is a new and singular universe with its own rules and its own visual culture.
