Will Fernandez~ born in Laz Villas, Cuba two weeks into the Castro revolution in ‘59. Moved to the US in ‘62 with parents and sister. Began to display artistic ability in both drawing and sculpture at the age of three. After a successful career as a commercial artist in South Florida, he decided to abandon the “normal life” to become a full time fine artist-bohemian in Key West where he found inspiration in the old wooden conch houses, colorful characters, cracked sidewalks, and free roaming chickens. His paintings are impressionistic with a bold a use of light and shadows and dramatic perspectives. He is also a sculptor working in wood, stone, paper mache and ceramics with subject matter ranging from animals, sea life and many versions of the human form. His work is known for its movement and humor.
