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.

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.

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. The art pieces were displayed in different walls around the main areas of the hotel and also a lot of them were in a small gallery for the international guests’ enjoyment.

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.

The Angel Ball is one of the biggest fundraise events for cancer research in the United States. This beautiful event is celebrated every year in New York City by Gabrielle’s Angel foundation. In 2018 and 2019, Fer Da Silva donated a huge (10’ x 10’) Corazón de Fer with wings; the hybrid was created to represent the love and all the angels that every year support the foundation to preserve the good cause. The pieces were the main art installations each year and they were also iconic points where all the guests were photographed. The art pieces were auctioned on CharityBuzz.
