The viral success of these projects led to exhibitions across the world including Vang Gogh Museum, Amsterdam and Saatchi Gallery, London. Cern has won numerous photo awards, which led him to opportunities to create campaigns for many high end brands such as Samsung, New Yorker, BMW, Chupa Chups.
In 2016 Tadao Cern has decided to move to a more conceptual form of artistic expression with his newly created projects 'Black Balloons', 'Chromatic Aberrations', 'Adobe Acrobat', ‘French Exit’. Cern continue to exhibit both photographic and art installation works globally.
