August Artist in Residence is Ignacio Font.Each Monday, Iggy will work in the Lobby, solving the problems of creating art in front of an audience while finding new ways to communicate his ideas visually.
Ignacio Font was born of Cuban parents on the island of Puerto Rico, where he began his search as an artist. As a child, Ignacio always felt an outsider, not belonging to his family, neighborhood or school. At the age of 10, he visited New York with his family and felt a warm embrace when in front of a Jackson Pollock painting. A year later his family moved to Miami from Puerto Rico and the disjointed feeling he always had became an even greater contrast to the warm embrace of the Pollock painting. This disjointed feeling, coupled with the warm embrace, are the driving forces in his works.
Ignacio received his Bachelor of Fine Arts at Florida International University, after changing his major from Computer Science – thanks to an astute Art History teacher who saw the artist in Ignacio. He later returned to the city where his love of art was ignited, and received his MFA from School for Visual Arts, New York. Currently, Ignacio teaches art at a private school in Miami, and creates work whenever and wherever he can.
