By Fernanda Morales Tovar

Fernanda Morales Tovar (b., Mexican, 1992). She is a visual artist whose work explores the analogies and dialectics existing in the environment that promotes the conjunction of nature and urban devices in everyday life. Through the use of paint, she constructs a visual archeology based on the interpretation and proposal of signs of the intersection of spaces, the human being, the stories, the ruin, and the landscape. 

She earned her Master of Fine Art (2018-2020) and her Bachelor of Fine Art (2011-2015) in Visual Arts from the National Autonomous University of Mexico. She completed an Academic Research stay at the Complutense University of Madrid (2019). She has four solo shows and more than forty group shows, in various museums and institutions in Mexico, the Netherlands, England and Chile. Her work has been selected in the International Art Biennials. She has participated in Art Fairs in Mexico and the Netherlands, such as BADA 2024, BADA 2023, and 25th Art Laren Art Fair. She was a beneficiary of the “Young Creators” in the Painting category, Fellowship of the System of Supports for Creation and Cultural Projects, Secretariat of Culture of the Government of Mexico (2021-2022).
