Sivana Cagnolo, gallery owner in Bologna said about Fernando Viscasillas:
The simplicity and the energy of this artist to define his works using a black outline to define each individual, yet without removing the flexibility of that shape or introducing any hardness to the form; the positive energy transmitted by his ironic characterization of his subject. He adds different characters and situations, with little physical description of the things or people involved, but with a clear and precise presentation of the personalities or the character of objects, leaving us imagine the rest. The colours chosen are sometimes provocative, not real. He places the images without a defined focal point and without any respect for perspective; he never makes a mistake in the balance of the composition or in its complexity. Everything is developed with complete harmony
