Artist Website

 

Manuel Fernando Rios is a Sacramento, CA based artist, Axis Gallery member and Art Instructor. His work explores the idea of borders, real and unreal. The imagery often includes figurative subjects juxtaposed next to colorful geometric shapes. The interaction between the figures results in pleasant or conflicting narratives.

Rios received his MA in Studio Art from California State University, Sacramento and his MFA from the University of California, Davis. Rios has shown in such venues as the Museum of the African Diaspora (M.o.A.D.), San Francisco, CA, Inkubator Press Cocoon Gallery, Kansas City, MO, and The Hive, Phoenix, AZ.
