ABOUT THE ARTIST
Fernanda Rodruguez Carbajales (b. 1991, Tulum, Mexico) is a figurative painter based in Mexico City. Having travelled around the world and immersing herself with different cultures, Carbajales focused her painting skills on portraiture – trying to portray a different illusion on real things that relate in a unique way to each observer. Studying textile design in Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico, she felt the need to expand her skills and knowledge internationally by complementing her studies in Parson Paris, Central Saint Martins in London and UP Buenos Aires. Always curious and creative, in the summer of 2013, she felt a great urge and calling for painting. From the moment she took her first canvas, colors and inspiration have become her daily life. A self-taught painter, focusing on portraits, Fernanda tries to portray a different illusion on real things that relate in a unique way to each observer. Focusing on the experimentation of colors, she creates a feeling in each art piece that transmits a distinctive personality and connection. Fernanda has found her passion and has unraveled herself in this artistic media. Always looking to better herself. Taking courses with a prominent artist in Mexico lead to deeper knowledge, while a year round course in mixed media emphasized her upon a broader art spectrum. Currently living in Tulum, Mexico she continues to explore her creativity always interested in adding new skills and technique creating unique art pieces. Faces and portraits always being the main theme – captivating different expressions trying to bring them to life with the intention of understanding the essence of the subject.
