Through rich, brooding illustrations, Carlos Fernández, who works under the nickname Carlos Fdez, embodies lingering feelings of loneliness that tarnish modern life. The blurred graphite veils have a surreal aura and overlay the special scenarios of sheep feeding on a wolf and desperate figures with puzzles. “More than just being alone, the greatest loneliness for me is the feeling that nobody understands you, that you are just there, sometimes wonderful, sometimes terrifying,” writes Fdez.
The Madrid-based artist is featured in an online show at Wow x wowwhich runs through January 29th. He sells prints of his introspective drawings in his shopand you can explore a larger collection of his work Instagram.
