Manila, Phillipines based artist Dex Fernandez creates works that range from street art murals, animation, painting and drawing to photography. Using a variety of media, his ongoing series of eclectic collage portraits combines almost all of his interests. Fernandez’s inspirations are equally diverse. His series juxtaposes good and evil, beauty and ugliness by mixing pop art, religious iconography, and vintage images from posters and magazines that he finds in thrift shops. Spliced and rearranged into single compositions, Fernandez then adds personal motifs like doodles of imaginary creatures, tattoos, plays with abstract pattern and word painting, with materials like acrylic and gold leaf. Each piece is meant to enhance the memories represented in the original photographs and materials.
