Why hearts?

My passion for the arts began as a child. I loved to create all forms of art. I was a song-writer, a singer, an actor, a sculptor and a painter. Many years ago, I found myself going through a very difficult situation in my life and was stuck in a fog of depression. During this time, the only thing that brought me joy was writing and painting. The more I continued to paint, the better I would feel. I realized that this was a form of therapy and by expressing myself in this way it allowed me to heal.

At the beginning I had no intention of painting hearts, I was actually painting abstract waves. One evening, I painted two waves colliding into each other and discovered ‘a heart’ staring back at me. Thus, the first ‘corazon de fer’ was born.

Who is Fer?

Fer Da Silva is a Venezuelan and Portuguese visual artist, that currently resides and creates most of his art pieces in New York City. 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.

A few years later in the city of Miami, and after having gone through a deep depression that nearly ended his life, 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. 

“I strongly believe in the power of love because it literally saved my life after a very dark path of heart broken and desolation; a period of time where I didn’t have the strength to keep living. That is why I paint hearts, I am alive thanks to “Corazón de Fer” and I am sure that love can save many people’s lives the same way as it did with me.”

Fer Da Silva’s artwork is showcased at a distinguished gallery on the east coast of the United States (New York, Boston, Washington D.C. and Nantucket). He also has a variety of murals in New York City and Miami, which have been reviewed and highlighted by important media such as Forbes, Vogue, Telemundo, Univision, and others. 

“Corazón de Fer” has reached the Asian continent as well, where Fer Da Silva’s art has been exhibited as the main artist of the Suzhou Center Mall 5th Anniversary Endless Heart celebration, in Suzhou City, China.

At present, Fer Da Silva keeps creating, doing very important exhibitions and taking his art around the world convinced that “Corazón de Fer” is a true way to give love and receive love in return.
