WELCOME TO ATELIER FERNANDA RODANTE
Fernanda Rodante was born on the 27th of September 1975 in São Paulo, Brazil.
She began to paint at the age of 21, during the psychology university and,
in the same month she graduated, she held her first individual exhibition.
The success of that exhibition changed her destiny forever.
After a year of solitary painting, she sought out her first teacher, the Argentine João Carlos Pensa,
with whom she studied for three years and deepened her knowledge of realistic painting.
Her second teacher was Jorge Branco, with whom she studied for a year
and deepened her knowledge of expressionist art.
The third teacher, with whom she studied for two years, was Chen Kong FANG, a Chinese grandmaster based in Brazil. With him Fernanda found her brushstroke, her painting style that accompanies her to this day.
She participated in several group exhibitions in Brazil and abroad,
such as the Montreux Art Gallery, in 2012 and the Artbox Project 2019, in Zürich.
She held ten solo exhibitions, all in Brazil. Of these, stand out “From Stage to Screen”, in 2012, (Legislative Assembly of the State of São Paulo)
and "Flags", in 2009, (National Joint Cultural Space).
Painting and art in general have their noblest purpose in inspiring and uplifting the human soul.
For me, painting is celebrating life, it is recording my passage through this peculiar planet, in a search for conscience and in defense of vulnerable beings.
