After spending a year in Los Angeles and San Francisco, Fernando moved to London in 1996 where he worked in his studio in Hackney until 2000, later moving to Dorset where he currently lives and works.

He has exhibited individually in London, New York and Madrid and has participated in many collective exhibitions throughout Europe and America, in addition to his presence at numerous international art fairs.

Fernando has received a number of commissions from private and public collections, including the Rosenberg & Kaufman Gallery in New York, for which he produced a monumental piece in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the birth of the iconic American composer, George Crumb, a collaboration with ICE ( The International Contemporary Ensemble) at Symphony Space in Manhattan. His work is part of many art collections including Universal Records, London, Paribas Real Estate, London and Hotel Arts in Barcelona.
