He produced various one-man shows among which we find: Recent Work at the Black Cube Gallery of Barcelona, Past-Present-Future at the Black Cube Gallery of Madrid and Identidades Metafóricas in Valverde del Camino (Huelva).
He has also participated in many group exhibitions in his country, such as: El público y lo público at the Espacio Sótano II, Facultad de Bellas Artes of Seville, IKAS-ART as a representative of the University of Seville of Vizcaya, Escuchando el silencio at Colegio Mayor Maese Rodrigo (Seville) and Riveras del Guadaira at the Alcalá de Guadaira Museum (Seville).
In 2016 he is selected to participate in Shakespeare in Rome organized by Galleria Russo of Rome with the patronage of the British Council for the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare.
He has participated with numerous galleries in many important fairs in Europe: XIX Exposiçao Internacional de Artes Vendas Novas (Galería M. N. Martin, Badajoz, Portugal), ARTS/ artsevilla 2015 (Black Cube Gallery, Barcelona), Arte Fiera Bologna 2015, Contemporary Istanbul 2014 and Art Factory Catania 2014, the latter all with Galleria Russo of Rome and Istanbul, for which he has collaborated with for the past two years.
In his works Cerero Molina deconstructs and accentuates in an unsacred and ironic manner such that the represented character’s expression and gestures are emphasized and brought to your attention, rather than the portrait itself. His artistic study is centred on the double nature of the subjects he represents; his compositions and the situations in which he inserts his characters lead to a sense of jubilant spirit.
