Once you become an artist. Your always an artist. Your stuck with it. Enjoy it.
Born in Uruguay in 1977, Fernando and his Portuguese immigrant parents lived on a farm in the countryside of Montevideo until he was 7 years old. In 1984 Fernando and his family moved to New Haven, Connecticut. Currently, Fernando lives with his wife Heike & daughter Lola in Pittsburgh, PA. From the time he was a small child Fernando’s interest in the art would not be denied, and it wasn’t long before the artist within began to emerge. In 1998, Fernando took his love of art to the next level when he enrolled in Paier College of Art in Hamden, Connecticut. Though his core studies concentrated on graphic design, Fernando never abandoned his passion for drawing and painting. The unique marriage of both modern and traditional mediums can be seen in everything Fernando creates. In addition to his visually artistic endeavors, Fernando’s untamable spirit for all forms of creative expression has manifested itself in the world of music. Having played in various local bands, he was able to communicate his love of sound through the pounding voice of his bass guitar. Now, with his focus trained fully on art, Fernando is currently displaying his work throughout the east and beyond.
