Ignacio Font is an artist/teacher in Miami, Florida. He received a Masters of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in New York City and a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Florida International University in Miami, Florida. Ignacio works predominantly with oil paint, but does wander into other media. His works concentrate on a need to create visual spaces that give the viewer a sense of belonging, countering the residue of Ignacio’s early childhood feelings of exclusion, of never ﬁtting in anywhere. This need goes back to an early exchange with a painting at a museum and the embrace experienced, his ﬁrst and most powerful encounter of an accepting visual place/space. Ignacio and his wife reside and live in Miami, Florida with family.
