Fernando Reyes was born in 1980 in Santa Monica, CA, to a loving family. He started to draw as a small child and naturally evolved from cartoons to comics to painting. At age sixteen, he saw images of the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo. This inspired him from that day forth to master the skill of being a fine arts painter. He is self-taught through a lifetime of devotion and practice. He has never been to an art school and has never had a teacher or tutor for art. He has been a professional artist since the age of seventeen. He has painted murals and signs for businesses, restaurants, schools, and more. His works have been exhibited in California, Nevada, and Mexico. He has been living in Las Vegas since 2011. His purpose is to leave his mark in art and take place among his heroes.
"Art is the mistress I was born to serve, it is not something I enjoy as a hobby. It's an obsession. It's more than a career, it's a calling. It is my life." - Fernando Reyes
