Statement

JOHN FERDICO - born in the Bronx, NY

During my formal training on scholarship at The Art Students League (1984-78) in NYC I met another student, DIANE LEON.  We were married in 1979 and continue to share our life together. We also maintain a home base in Alicante, Spain where we spend most of the summer.

I use vestiges of the past as symbols to embody the continuum of the human spirit in a contemporary vision.  I work in oils, acrylics and collage.  My work is a response to the images and history of archaic and prehistoric cultures.

My influences come from (jazz)  music, film and Spain.   I also studied at FIT and worked  in wax and metal.  I fabricated my own jewelry and designs.

My work was chosen twice by The Arts in Embassies Program.  In 2006 I had three works at the US Embassy in Estonia and in 2007 three other works at the US Embassy in Amman, Jordan.

Diane Leon and I were a featured article in the Queens Courier in July 2008 by Marianne Nash, "Queens Artists' works hang in US Embassies."

Diane and I currently are represented by Gallery 54 in England.
