Bolero, from Madriz (1984)
Carlos Ceesepe is a Spanish painter and comic artist. Born Carlos Sánchez Pérez in Madrid, he chose his pseudonym through the pronunciation of his initials. With no formal graphic education, he published his first comics in the 1970s in Spanish underground publications like Carajillo or Nasti de Plasti from Barcelona, while publishing his series 'Slober' in the magazines Star and Bésame Mucho.

Later he published in the legendary and revolutionary magazine El Víbora, and then in Metal Hurlant and Madriz. In 1982, 'Dibujos' appeared, and a year later 'Barcelona by Night' was published, in which he integrated a few comics. Ceesepe eventually drifted away from comics however, and focused on painting.
Inspired by Picasso and Miro, Ceesepe has also designed various record covers and movie posters. He has exhibited in Paris, Madrid, Amsterdam, Japan and New York. Currently he is living and painting in Madrid.
