Andriacci, Fernando

About The Artist

Fernando Andriacci is a Contemporary painter, originally from Cuicatlán, in Oaxaca, Mexico. In his professional training he has dedicated himself to the field of art and its expressions, considering both practical and theoretical notions but, without a doubt, it is his participation as founder of the Workshop of Municipal Plastic Arts and Monumental Painting Rodolfo Nieto, which gives him the necessary impetus to define his way of making art and mark his career as a painter. The operation of the workshop was oriented to the creation of works, generally murals in public spaces and government buildings, so that it enjoyed sufficient freedom to consolidate its own genre.

In the region of Oaxaca he lives and knows an important movement of artistic renewal, in which figures such as Francisco Toledo, Rufino Tamayo, and Rodolfo Nieto stand out, among others. It is no coincidence that the natural and cultural environment influenced the work of each of them, leaving their mark on Mexican art. Andriacci admits, more than artistic influences, influences that are derived from sharing a unique context and space.  He is distinguished for his work in painting, ceramics and mural work. In his work predominate animal and vegetable figures, richly dressed with smaller ones and with designs that are inserted in the decorative. The zoomorphic representations become their own bestiary that recreates the dimension of the fantastic.

Create the images by joining straight lines, zigzag, oblique, curves that seem to have been drawn regardless of color, however, coexist in perfect balance. Similarly, the use of mixed techniques enriches textures, without neglecting harmony. His work has gone from variegation to a lower saturation of space and a search for greater balance in shades. The composition is a playful space that seems to emerge from the same imaginative wealth as its countrymen. It is a composition related to the narrative, which becomes a window that shows the variety and importance of local traditions.
