Fernando (Nando) Eandi was born in Turin on 26 August 1926. After his family temporarily moved to Carmagnola, he spent his childhood and adolescence in Turin, in the Valentino area: the familiar image of the Po and the hills will always remain a favourite subject of his painting. Since childhood he has cultivated a passion for drawing. He then attended the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts, graduating in the Decorative Arts course.
He took part in the Resistance, together with his brother Vanni, with the Garibaldi Brigade. Immediately after the war, he attended courses at Alba (Free Academy of Fine Arts, at the Fashion Palace), where he met his future wife Anna Jarre, a sculptor.
In 1949 he planned to move to Rome, but only spent a short time there. Returning permanently to Turin, he married Anna in 1953 and combined painting with the profession of restorer of antique lacquer and gilding. In the 1950s he began taking part in group exhibitions. In 1970, he left restoration to devote himself exclusively to painting, thanks to the lively cultural climate and collecting in those years. During this period, he resumed his interest in engraving, which he had practised episodically at the end of the 1950s, and which he now regularly combined with painting.
In addition to his work as a painter and engraver, Nando also teaches engraving: at first more informally, in the 1980s, at the CRAL of the Istituto Bancario San Paolo; then, for the 1989/90 academic year, he replaced Francesco Franco on the Chair of Engraving Techniques at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts. He then continued to work with a group of student-friends at the "Atelier di corso Dante".
In recent years his production was reduced, in painting but above all in engraving, due to visual problems; however, Nando continued to frequent his studio together with his closest friends until the last months of his life: his last completed painting dates back to June 2017.
He died on 12 February 2018.
