FERNANDO MASTRANGELO ON ESCAPE

 

Fernando Mastrangelo draws on the grand and sublime in nature and is renowned for his use of unusual but elucidating materials.

Earlier this month we sat down with the artist to discuss Escape, a new line of furniture he will debut at Maison Gerard April 13th. We talked inspiration, form, and, above all, material. He spoke about his conception of art, his rigorous approach, and what he hopes to achieve with his work.
