How Fred Bugs’ Works Between Geometric Shapes and Childlike Figures

Fred is an Italian abstract artist best known in the US for his spontaneous figurative drawings. Fred Bugs works are a mix of abstract art with childlike emotions. Fred Bugs, as the name is interesting is also derived from Federico Cabras, a fascinating individual artist.

He was born in 1997 in the Sardinian village of Bosa, which has 8,000 residents and is located in the province of Oristano, As Fred says, art has been a massive part of his life ever since he started making drawings in his school. He did so partly due to boredom and because he wasn’t much of an extroverted person with an edgy character.

His art helped him get distracted from those almost interminable hours of lessons between the desks of that technical institute he attended. Some Significant Works of Fred:
