The 21st century mudéjar ceramicist

  • • Fernando is a specialist in the art of mudéjar ceramics
  • • He creates new pieces and restores historic buildings
  • • Sharing his craft is his mission

To speak of azulejos (glazed and coloured tiles) and mudéjar art is to contemplate one of the oldest traditions in the history of Spain. Fernando Malo’s inspiration comes from this past, but his aim is to make it relevant nowadays. His body of work merges the aesthetics of centuries-old Islamic art in the Iberian peninsula with elements of contemporary art in what he calls 21st century mudéjar. He focuses on azulejos and ceramics, as well as the creation of tile murals and the restoration of historic buildings. His workshop is where it all comes together, where he draws on his inspirations – which include nature and landscape – to create work with passion, care and colour.
