Caio Fernandes

Posted in Caio Fernandes by faultmagazine on February 2, 2010

Caio Fernandes (Born 1975) is a painter from Sao Paulo, Brazil. Sometimes described as a Realist — the sheer intensity of his work sets him apart from most contemporary Realist painters. With a highly individualistic style of painting, Caio reveals the raw physical characteristics and inner tensions of his subjects. A strong interest in Kardecist Spiritism, which proposes an intricate set of perspectives of the “self”, is undoubtedly apparent in his self-portraits — Though Caio affirms that a self-portrait can only be considered as a visual reflection of himself. “There is no conceptual speech behind it” – Caio believes strongly that the only important thing is the painting itself.

    In a world filled with copycats and meaningless art, Caio’s work stands out as relevant and …for lack of a better word…harsh. He is original and fearless. There hasn’t been an artist like him in decades.

    I have likened Caio’s work to that of Francis Bacon even now to Lucien Freud. He is a master.
