About Ferjo

 

Fernando de Jesus Oliveira (known as Ferjo) was born in Bahia, Brazil in 1946.  He studied at the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from 1974-1979, where he concentrated on landscape and portraiture. It was during this time that Ferjo began painting Cubist style landscapes and eventually moving to realist portraiture. This latter style is best evidenced by a mock group portrait (1978-1979) of the faculty of the Pennsylvania Academy, in which Ferjo posed his subjects in positions reminiscent of those of Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Last Supper”. Since receiving special accolades from the Pennsylvania Academy, first in 1978 and then again in 1979, Ferjo’s command of realist painting became widely recognized in galleries. After leaving The Academy, Ferjo’s natural artistry led him to explore a myriad of themes and styles, ranging from Realism to Surrealism.

 

 

Ferjo’s compositions combine the old masters and the new, in a magical bounty of color, surrealism, fantasy and beauty. His affinity for tokens adds a personal dimension to each work. Images of pencils, bubbles, fish, strawberries, and broken eggshells float throughout his work. The surrealist worlds he creates pay homage to Bosch, Vermeer, Van Gogh, Renoir, Picasso, Dali, Monet, Manet, Matisse, Miro, Modigliani, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Mucha and Chagall. In Ferjo’s world, the laws of perspective and scale are given new meaning; space and time are manipulated in fantastical arrangements, giving the viewer a sense of falling into another dimension.

 

Whimsical, colorful and technically refined, Ferjo’s work is an exuberant mix of Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, Realism and Surrealism. Ferjo is a master painter with a style he can truly call his own. Ferjo’s work is sought by collectors and galleries worldwide.
