 Fernando Molero’s vibrant paintings in colors of azure and emerald evoke his childhood home in southern Spain. Real architectural sites, such as the 14th-century Patio de los Arrayanes in Alhambra, Granada, make appearances in Molero’s paintings, as do fantastical buildings, conjured from the artist’s imagination. “Many artists use light as a tool to illuminate their subjects,” says Molero. “I make light the subject itself.” This interest in light often manifests in a painted veil, which acts as a barrier and an invitation to the viewer. Molero studied at the University of Barcelona, and taught art at the Leonardo da Vinci Academy of Art in Barcelona.
