Fernando García Dory (Madrid, 1978) is a neo-pastoral and agro-ecologist artist. His work deals with subjects affecting the current relation between culture and nature in the framework of landscape, countryside, desires and expectations related to aspects of identity, crisis, utopia and social change. He often uses self-organization strategies, initiating collaborative social plastic processes. He studied Fine Arts at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and Rural Sociology. His interest in mobility, rythms and relation with space, made him to start to work with trashumants and nomads. After creating a Shepherds School, he organised a World Gathering of Nomadic and Trashumant Pastoralists, resulting from it the WAMIP ( World Alliance of Mobile Indigenous Pastoralists) , representing the 250 mill of nomadic pastoralists in the world.
