Biography

Fernando Molero's vibrant paintings in colors of azure and emerald evoke his childhood home in southern Spain. Real architectural sites, such as the 14th-century Patio de los Arrayanes in Alhambra, Granada, make appearances in Molero's paintings, as do fantastical buildings, conjured from the artist's imagination. "Many artists use light as a tool to illuminate their subjects," says Molero. "I make light the subject itself.” This interest in light often manifests in a painted veil, which acts as a barrier and an invitation to the viewer. Molero studied at the University of Barcelona, and taught art at the Leonardo da Vinci Academy of Art in Barcelona. He currently resides in New York.
