Biography

Nicasio Fernandez’s vivid oil paintings unravel from the imagination by stretching daily life into an absurd territory and exploring what it means to be human. Within his surreal-like paintings there is a cast of highly expressive figures who appear delicately grotesque with their over-exaggerated limbs and unnatural hues of flesh. Fernandez’s work pictorially relates to Peter Saul, Judith Linhares, German Expressionists, Chicago Imagists and cartoons from Chuck Jones. Fernandez’s paintings are occupied with ideas of slapstick and dark humor, parody of masculinity, and questionable emotional/physical endurance of life. 

Nicasio Fernandez was born in Yonkers, New York in 1993 and currently lives and works in Mahopac, New York. He received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York. His recent solo exhibitions include Working Through It at Harpers Books, New York, NY; Lose Some Win None at Galerie Sebastien Adrien, Paris, France; Poor-Traits at Maid’s Room in San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Off to a Rocky Start at Kustera Projects in Brooklyn, New York. His work has been in group shows at Martha’s Contemporary, TX, Galerie Sebastein Adrien, France, Ortega y Gasset, NY, Allouche Gallery, NY, 0-0 LA, CA, Spring/Break Show, NY, and Lesley Heller’s Gallery, NY.
