The work of Fernando Mastrangelo incorporates various social, historical and political narratives, utilizing unique and unusual media to create works that are conceptually complex and visually referential. His materials range from gunpowder, salt and birdseed, to the much more controversial pieces “Felix,” a sculpture crafted using cocaine, and “La Salvamara,” a series made using cremated human ashes from the street gang MS 13. Exploring various signifiers, sub-cultures, and modern mythological forms, Mastrangelo creates through a lens of both contemporary and historical legacy, giving visual agency to both his materials and their “connotative value.”
Fernando Mastrangelo has exhibited extensively throughout the US and beyond in both group and solo exhibitions. Group show include Neuberger Museum, Purchase, NY, Mike Weiss Gallery, New York NY and the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn. He has been featured in publications such as Flaunt Magazine, Juxtapoz Magazine, and Whitewall Magazine.
