Fernando Bryce was born in 1965 in Lima, Peru and studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris from 1986 to 1990. He engages in a distinctive form of critical reflection that uses drawing as a tool to address the tragic banality of historical images, documents, and texts. Bryce is interested in examining how visual and written media create and convey a perception of a country, a people, or a historical event, and practices a neutral drawing reminiscent of comic strips of the mid-twentieth century. His work has been featured in numerous international exhibitions including the 8th Istanbul Biennale (2003), 50th Venice Biennale (2003), the Busan Biennale (2002), and the Lima Biennale (2000), where he won the prize of the exhibition. Bryce’s work can also be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Art Institute of Chicago, and the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, Switzerland.
