Talking About TV Show, Queens Public Television, New York.

Talking About on Queens Public Television in New York welcomed Fernando. Cara Kilduff and Jonathan Griffith were joined by extraordinary artist Fernando Carpaneda, who discussed his life, work, and inspirations.

Last night I attended the live Talk Show, Talking About, at Blip TV in Queens (New York). The interview was awesome! We talked about my works, gay pride , my magazine Carpazine , my last art show at MF Gallery, my participation in the exhibition at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music and several other things.

Check out Brazilian artist Fernando Carpaneda's homoerotic paintings and sculptures of societal outcasts, including young punks and sex workers. His work is on view alongside similarly themed (but nongay) works by Frank Russo and Moses Jaen. After tonight's opening reception, the show is available to view by appointment only.

Seattle Erotic Art Festival. Seattle. USA 

Fernando Carpaneda was named as a Juror's Choice for Visual Art at the 2016 Seattle Erotic Art Festival. "The Rebirth of Punk" sculpture was one of three pieces of art to receive the award.

At the Festival, every artists who gets their work in the exhibition is a winner. The jury agonizes over which pieces will make up the Seattle Erotic Art Festival Visual Art exhibition each year. And as a reward for their hard work, we ask them to choose three pieces that stand out just a little more than the rest to be the Jury Choice Awards. These artists will return to the next year’s Festival as Invited Artists. More info at:

Those willing to keep an open mind and explore Carpaneda’s work will be glad they did because he is a truly amazing artist. A brave artist too. Brave enough to use rent boys, thieves, punks, goths, homeless people, and other unsavoury types as the subject of his work. If you are intrigued then please read on. When I first saw a picture of one of Carpaneda’s works I didn’t know what I was looking at. What I saw looked like a photo of a person but had a surreal element to it that suggested that there was more to Carpaneda’s work than the image revealed. As soon as I found out that I was looking at a clay sculpture I was completely blown away. The level of detail and the amount of work put into each sculpture is quite astonishing especially for a clay sculpture. To give each sculpture a personal association with the person they depict, Carpaneda uses objects connected to that person in the sculpture.Carpaneda says about his work on his website that: “All his portraits are like a relic, a holy place, a moment caught in time. He uses objects that have a connection to the portrayed person to composing his work, such as cigarette butts, condoms, beer cans, underwear, semen, empty toothpaste boxes. In other words, things that are part of these people’s real world, and his own. He uses such objects and remains as a beginning for his portraits”.  READ MORE.

I sometimes come across artists that I just have to let the world know about and Fernando Carpaneda is one of those artists, but be warned, because Carpaneda’s work is very confronting and will be not be to everyone’s taste.
