"Stanislaw Fernandes takes realism
and turns it into the surreal, often in a bizarre
and shocking manner. Illustrations from highly
detailed medical subjects to far out science
fiction all somehow accommodate themselves
to his dramatic, eye-poping style.
Fernandes approaches his subjects with
hard-edged, literal, realistic terms. From his
formal training in architecture and the fine arts,
he achieved a discipline that he transforms to
graphic design and illustration. But it is his
creative eye and natural talent that elevates a
craft to an art form."
"Brilliant colors dominate Stanislaw Fernandes'
work. ...he achieves such clarity of colors that his
high-tech images often seem to have been
composed of pure light."
"...this innovative illustrator expresses himself
with intelligence and intensity."
