Who is Fer?
Fernando Jose Da Silva Delfin, known as Fer Da Silva was born in Caracas-Venezuela on May 29th 1989. From the moment of his birth, Fer grew up in a home imbued with the artistic expressions, started by his mother who, as an artist, fed his sensibility for art with her paintings. Thanks to this, Fer Da Silva at a young age, began to demonstrate his skills for the arts among family and friends; passion that continued to develop until adulthood.
With a design based on the observation of his mother’s method , some studies and also based on research, Da Silva continued his painting exploring different styles and techniques. A few years after moving to the city of Miami – USA , and after having gone through a deep depression, Fer created, almost magically, the work that led him to be known in several countries around the world with its motto “The Power of Love“ through his artwork called Corazón de Fer.
Currently, Fer Da Silva lives in New York City creating more hearts, doing exhibitions and bringing his art around the world convinced that Corazón de Fer is a true way to give love and receive love in return.
What is Corazón de Fer?(Fer's heart)
Corazón de Fer is an unforeseen wake up up call from the dark. I was in there. I was stuck in the abyss of darkness and was feeling hopeless but I wanted to fight back and painting kept me alive.
Corazón de Fer is more than just Hearts. It is a reminder for everyone to love who you are, to give love, to love what you do and to embrace every part of your life. It symbolizes that the power of love enables us to achieve happiness and live our dreams.
Using a myriad form of materials from acrylics to resin, I develop these pieces of art representing what Love has done to me and what love can and will do for you. Each stroke of color represents a different meaning. Every splash of the paint I use at the end is a slow and fast heartbeat. Every single heart is unique, filled with scars and with different shapes. Each one shows the beauty of what is inside of us and what makes our hearts beautiful and unique. This is all part of the story that I was going through for a certain period of my life. Corazón de Fer is trying to honor what truly makes us beautiful…and that is the color and the beat of our hearts.
Corazón de Fer has given me innumerable blessings throughout these years and I want to keep sharing this power to everyone, because I think we all deserve to love and to be loved.
This is Corazón de Fer.
The Power of Love.
