Big Blend Radio: Artist John Ferdico in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Ferdico was born in New York and raised in Kansas City, where he received his B.A. in Fine Arts from the Kansas City Art Institute. After that, he received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, and lived in Oakland, CA, before moving to Hawai’i in 2012. The Artist takes hyperreal model aircraft, painstakingly builds them, paints them, and then uses them as a launching platform for a surrealist visual experiments that both entrance and estrange.

This project is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, Friends of Hawai?i Volcanoes National Park, and other generous benefactors.
