About the Artist
Fernando Carpaneda has been creating sculptures and paintings within the punk and homoerotic genres since the 1980s. His voracious involvement in the cause of diversity and punk culture led him to exhibit at: the CBGB art gallery, The Heckscher Museum of Art, The Tom of Finland Foundation, The Leslie Lohman Museum of Art, and on the LED panels in Times Square, New York. Carpaneda also created illustrations for The Best of Punk Globe Magazine: a book that brings together interviews with Debbie Harry, Boy George, Jamie Oliver (UK SUBS), Earl Slick, John Lydon, The Adicts, Glen Matlock, Joe Dallesandro. Carpaneda’s works were published in the book Treasures Of Gay Art, by the Leslie Lohman Museum of Art, alongside Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe and Keith Haring. Recently, the artist made it two in a row returning to the Long Island Biennial.
