Ivonne Fernández y González
German-Spanish multidisciplinary autistic artist and psychologist (cand. M.Sc.).
My art focuses on current social and scientific issues.
Within the framework of the funding series "Bündnisse für Bildung" (Alliances for Education) of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, I conceive artistic concepts for educationally disadvantaged children.
More information about my cultural education work as well as my CV can be found here:
The works of Käthe Kollwitz, which I experienced on a school trip to the Käthe Kollwitz Museum in Cologne at the age of 12, initiated my decision to become an artist and have had a lasting influence on my work. I still consider her expressive depiction of social ills to be unsurpassed. Other influences on my work are Tim Burton, Hieronymus Bosch, Edvard Munch and the esthetics of the punk and goth scene of the 1980s.
2022 - Interview im Sanctuary Magazine
April '22: Featured Artist: Ivonne Fernandez y Gonzalez
Ivonne discusses the inspiration behind her work, the unique perspective of autistic artists, and how she helps autistic youth process their emotions through art. What was the inspiration behind your "Broken City" series, and what do you hope the viewer takes away? Broken City refers to the destruction of humanity - through nuclear war or natural disasters.
