Fernando Mastrangelo Studio
Fernando Mastrangelo is a Brooklyn-based artist best known for his Collectible Design, as well as his large scale sculptures and experiential installations. All of Mastrangelo's works are sculpted by hand from natural or repurposed materials such as sand, salt, silica, and crushed or powdered glass. His passionate concern with ecological issues continues to influence his growing language.
Mastrangelo currently has works in numerous private collections worldwide, as well as works residing in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum and the Cooper Hewitt Museum. His works have been exhibited in both national and international exhibitions, including but not limited to, Art Basel, Collective Design Fair, Sight Unseen Offsite, Salone del Mobile in Milan, Art Genève, Mendes Wood Gallery, Mike Weiss Gallery, the Neuberger Museum, and Rossana Orlandi's Gallery in Milan. He has designed custom commissioned works and spaces for top-tier international brands such as Audemars Piguet, Stella McCartney and Dior.
Mastrangelo received his BFA in Sculpture from Cornish College of the Arts in 2002 and completed his MFA in Sculpture in 2004 at Virginia Commonwealth University. After graduation, he worked for Matthew Barney before launching his own studio, Fernando Mastrangelo Studio (F/MS) in 2006.
In 2017, Mastrangelo founded In Good Company, a non-profit that honors creativity and the spirit of the avant-garde by providing a platform for emerging artists & designers to exhibit work without commercial or creative constraints.
"Mastrangelo's work respects form while pushing the boundaries of design, is content heavy without losing its uniquely ethereal qualities, and is forever founded on a bedrock of reverence towards materials that borders on devout."
