Meet Fernando Bolaños of Infvmous in Oak Cliff

Today we’d like to introduce you to Fernando Bolaños.

So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I picked up being an artist watching my older brother draw. I enjoyed it a lot and just kept going from there. I didn’t have many art classes during my middle and high school years, but I was always drawing in class either on desks or work papers. After high school, I didn’t know what to do, I was limited to many things because of my migrant status and not having much support relatives.

That’s when I realized art would become more than I thought it ever would. Ended becoming a tattoo artist watching Miami Ink, still not sure why I took that decision. I don’t just focus on tattooing, I enjoy doing murals, crafts, and whatever has me creating. To summarize, art is my lifeline, it’s kept me alive supported me when others didn’t.

Has it been a smooth road?
I didn’t grow up poor nor privileged. The thing I struggled was having a stable home. As a kid mom wasn’t around, aunt raised me became my mother figure. When I moved to USA, everything was ok, but I started feeling out of place, unaccepted, my family wasn’t the family I thought I had. I knew I had to cut ties, I was moving around a lot, one or two times I might have slept in stairways. But besides everything I’m glad it happened, I made a few friends that became family. That’s all that matters now

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Infvmous – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
Infvmous is just a logo/name I came up with. Being know as a bad person in my family, I decided to take the word infamous, and make something good from it. I want to make Infvmous a brand name for art, and fashion. Looking for everyone to enjoy. Still working on it though.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Dallas that I grew up here, I love the sites. The arts district. There’s a variety of places to visit. But the thing I love is the skyline view at night. I really really hate the traffic……
