Fernando Lozano was born in Mexico City and lived there until moving to California at 17 years of age. He attributes his desire to be an artist to the influences of the muralist movement created by Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros. 

As an artists, Fernando has always tried to be faithful to his passion. Day by day, he draws from the injustices, conflicts, and tragedies in life that define the Art he is compelled to explore and produce. Art has recorded all aspects throughout human history. His goal is to add to this amazing pictorial collection documenting profound events he has experienced in his lifetime. 

Fernando Lozano's art transcends genre. His paintings, prose, and graphic designs are untied through his choice device of layered messaging. Lozano's work has been exhibited in Mexico City; Los Angeles; Indianapolis; Vincennes, Indiana; Jasper, Indiana; and the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. He currently resides in Vincennes, Indiana.
