All these very different aspect of the art world fueled his inspiration and he naturally felt the need the merge aspects of these techniques in order to develop his own visual signature.

His artworks depict a world of exotic creatures that that inhabit the mind of this emerging artist since a very young age.

A contemporary visual language that enables the viewer to travel through time and establish connections between ancient and modern times, East and West, interior and exterior and, most importantly, between the material and the spiritual. Fernando has worked and exhibited his art in several countries of America and Europe.
