Collection: Dexter Fernandez

Dex Fernandez is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and works in Manila, Philippines. With a drawing practice sourced from street art and found footage, Fernandez’s practice ranges from paintings, drawings, and animations to murals, mixed media works and photography. Through juxtaposition of religious iconography with pop imagery, children’s drawings, tattoo motives and cut outs from adult magazines, Fernandez’s eclectic compositions challenge the traditional definitions of high culture and fine art. By adding imaginary landscapes, patterns and creatures to found images, he explores the idea of found memories and appropriation.
