bio / cv

Eduardo Fausti was born in Argentina; he attended the University of Mendoza where his architectural studies were interrupted during the years of political turmoil. He immigrated to the United States in 1978 and settled in New York. In 1988, he moved to California where he resumed his studies at the San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI); he spent the last semester of his undergraduate studies at SACI (Studio Art Centers International, Florence, Italy) before receiving his BFA in 1993. An interest in Asian Philosophy and Aesthetics moved Fausti to continue his studies at the China National Academy of Fine Arts in Hangzhou, People’s Republic of China in 1995. In 1997, Fausti earned his MFA from Rutgers University, New Jersey, and was the recipient of the Patricia Roberts Harris Fellowship in Visual Arts. That same year Fausti participated in a joint Dieu Donné Paper Mill, Inc., Rutgers Center for Innovative Print and Paper (now Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions) and CARE International funded project to establish an ecological hand-made paper mill in Ecuador. Fausti has been an artist-in-residence in Belgium, Italy and Morocco. He has participated in numerous national and international juried print exhibitions. Several public and private institutions count his work among their permanent collections. He currently lives and works between New York City and San Juan Islands, WA.
