About the Author

Caio Fern
CaioFernande Mein Welt
CAIO FERN, born in São Paulo, Brazil in 1975, studied Psychology at Universidade Paulista. Fern's work is sometimes described as Realist, "though the sheer intensity of his work sets him apart from most contemporary Realist painters. With a highly individualistic style of painting, Caio reveals the raw physical characteristics and inner tensions of his subjects which proposes an intricate set of perspectives of the "self", is apparent in his self-portraits. Though Caio affirms that a self-portrait can only be considered as a visual reflection of himself, "There is no conceptual speech behind it," he believes strongly that the only important thing is the painting itself."

"1995 while writing a poem named Vida Secreta (Secret Life) in my notebook, on the opposite page the ink left the opposite written–Aterces Adiv. This was just perfect for all I was trying to say...Aterces Adiv, nothing can be hidden in life and as consequence in art." –Caio Fernandes Caio is a brilliant artist and poet.
This is a perfect book.
