GUSTAVO FERNANDEZ
VISUAL ARTIST



Born in Caracas, Venezuela in September 1973. Gustavo studied graphic design at Caracas Design Institute.
Although his artistic career started a bit more than 20 years ago, drawing was his main passion from a very young age.

He is fully dedicated to the arts since 1995. Gustavo blends prowessly a fine chromatic use with the application of relief and textures. This offers the viewer an attractive, positive and sometimes tri-dimensional visual experience. Gustavo’s talent lies precisely in reinventing his work and always seeking to push all limits, without indulging in excess, while maintaining an almost spiritual harmony. A visual experience full of images, messages and symbols that go beyond color.


Fernandez defined himself as: "The artwork that never ends"
