Christian Fernandez started making art his junior year of high school, but he has been interested in art and the creative process since he was thirteen years old. He began his practice in the City Studio program and was with them for two semesters, then joined Southern Exposure’s Mission Voices Summer program. From there he dove into art-making by working on projects with Southern Exposure’s Youth Advisory Board for three more semesters, and another summer in Mission Voices. With SoEx he has taken part in many projects, including helping curate the show Gone, portraying the Life Knight in Allison Smith’s The Cries of San Francisco, and creating the “Seer of Sights Unseen” persona for the Hidden In Sight exhibition. He is now in his fourth semester at Southern Exposure.
