Fer Caggiano is a Brazilian born painter, who specializes in landscapes, still lifes, and portraits. Ranging from a traditional to modern style, Fer creates colorful, textured, impasto oil paintings that capture visions of the world she sees. Using her canvas as her window, she provides a bright, new perspective to showcase our beautiful world. Not only does Fer make bold statements with her oils, she also paints using watercolor to create more subtle, relaxing artwork. Venturing off from her smaller canvases, Fer expands her ideas to create beautiful, imaginative murals and decorative paintings.
Fer has loved art since opening her very first box of crayons. She unfortunately believed that art was not a good career growing up, so she dedicated several years of her life to advertising and marketing. Tired of feeling unfulfilled, her heart eventually led her back to painting. She moved to New York and enrolled at The Art Students League where she studied painting, drawing, and mixed media. She lived in New York for three years and London for two years. After her divorce, Fer decided to seek a spiritual path at The Odsal Ling Tibetan Buddhist temple in Brazil for four years. While at the temple, she focused more on mural painting and decided to explore muralist work professionally. Her art has been recognized worldwide and was showcased in multiple galleries, including the prestigious Agora Gallery, SOHO. She has been featured on television shows, invited to participate in solo and group exhibitions, and appears in a few South American art books.
Fer currently resides in Charleston, South Carolina, where she paints in her home studio. She is open to commission work and is happy to work towards her clients’ requests.
