Fernando Velazquez is a contemporary Spanish painter whose otherworldly canvases blur the boundaries between imagination and reality. The artist’s bold, ethereal compositions explore grand themes of time, light and the human condition. 'I believe that my paintings encapsulate life,' says Fernando.…Show more We love the artist’s swirling, mystical style and the way his subject matter moves in and out of distinction across the canvas. Fernando’s works are poetry in paint form.
For a time Fernando worked from a studio in Hackney. The artist has since relocated to Dorset, where he paints in almost total seclusion. For Fernando, painting is more than technique and intention – it is an 'endless journey towards light'.
The artist has enjoyed a long career and his work is held in collections across the world, from Spain and the UK to China and the US. In 2013, Fernando was the exhibition prizewinner at the Dorchester Open. The following year he was a finalist for both the Evolver Prize at the Atkinson Gallery in Somerset and the Tribe Prize at Bath’s Edgar Modern.Show less
"Fernando paints with real passion. His works are bursting with energy and life. They are beautiful abstract pieces, but they're layered with meaning so they work on many different levels. I think these would look stunning in any interior."
