Bio:

Fernando Viscasillas is a contemporary visual artist . He received a Fine Arts Degree from the University of La Laguna, Tenerife, (Spain) and has participated over 14 solo exhibitions in Italy, France, Portugal, Spain, Tokyo, Monte - Carlo, London ( ArtRooms Fair 2018 )……… and over 30-35 group shows.
He was invited to the Biennale of Contemporary Art in Florence 2003, which is awarded the Lorenzo il Magnifico Medal.
Viscasillas paints inspiration from the coast of Galicia, Northwest of Spain, and seascapes and country of Uk where he travel often last years.
About his paintings of architectures in Italy, Silvana Cagnolo, gallery owner in Bologna, said in 2003:
"The simplicity and the energy of this artist define his works using the composition to define each individual, yet without removing the flexibility of that shape or introducing any hardness to the form and the positive energy transmitted by his ironic characterization of his subject and his several architectural styles.
In his pictures everything seems coincidental and connected only by chance, together with other things, but it is not exactly true. The colours chosen are sometimes provocative, not real. He places the images without a defined focal point and without any respect for perspective; he never makes a mistake in the balance of the composition or in its complexity. Everything is developed with complete harmony."
