He returned to the Bay Area and has lived in Oakland since 1998. Fernando’s studio is located in the Jingletown neighborhood in Oakland at Ford Street Studios. His work has been primarily representational and includes oil paintings, drawings, and printmaking. Fernando’s primary interest was straightforward depictions of the human figure until a 2014 visit to MoMA in New York for the Henri Matisse The Cut Outs exhibition. It made such an impact on Fernando that he embarked on creating his own cut outs. Subsequently taking his art making in the direction of abstract art in both paper cutouts and oil painting. In January 2018, the Mexican Museum in San Francisco mounted An Artist’s Evolution, a retrospective of his work.
