In 2019, Fer Da Silva did an art exhibition at the Sofitel Hotel in New York City. Da Silva showed his art during the month of February on that year to celebrate San Valentine’s month.

One of the most important cities for the pride month celebration is New York City. In June 2019, Fer Da Silva created an active art installation named “The Machine of Love” to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the World’s Pride. Da Silva filled an entire room with diferente and very unique art pieces representing inclusive love; each wall was an interactive art creation where the visitors could connect visually and physically with the piece. The installation was open during the whole summer season attracting people from all around the world to take pictures and enjoy The Machine of Love.
Fer Da Silva was invited to do a live installation at the 2019 VIP clients anual celebration at Neiman Marcus, Newport Beach, California. Fer created a big Corazon de Fer mosaic, using the Neiman Marcus shopping bags as a canvas; the idea was to reflect how each client conform the company’s heart. On the other side of bags, they had a single heart created by Fer Da Silva as well. These shopping bags, full of love and art, were given to the clients as a reminder of how special and important they are to the company.
As part of the Hispanic month celebration, Fer Da Silva, Venezuelan artist, was invited to do an art exhibition inside the Viacom/CBS building, located in Times Square, New York. The exhibition was visited for many people, including Dottie Herman, Douglas Elliman CEO (one of the largest real estate companies in the US).
During the 50th anniversary of Corolla – Toyota, Fer Da Silva was the artist in charge of creating four “Corazón de Fer” which were given to the brand’s executives as symbols of the love and dedication for the company. Also, these four hearts represented the actual meaning of the Toyota’s logo; which are three overlapping ellipses symbolizing the unification of the hearts of the customers and the heart of Toyota products.
