Michael Fernandes was born in Trinidad and currently lives and works in Halifax, where he teaches at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. His art practice includes mixed media, installation, and performance, as well as audio and book works.

His work probes the intersection of private life with public space, and the relationship between art and everyday life, by combining linguistic and performance events with humour.
