Adam Hernandez is a self-taught artist born and raised in the Bronx to a family a musicians and performers. As a kid, the graffiti covering every surface of his city spoke to him, and it inspires his work today.
Adam has exhibited in several cities across the US and has been published multiple times. His characters exist in the Land Of Thunderbirds, a mythical world he created to tell the stories of heroes and gods. Throughout his career Hernandez has found inspiration in Pablo Picasso, Egon Scheille, and Francis Picabia, as well as the Abstract Expressionist Movement, the Lowbrow Art Movement, and comic books. Hernandez currently resides in Columbus, Ohio.
“I create work that is energetic, bright, and powerful. I aim to make it hard for the viewer to look away. Through the strength of my imagery, I hope to convey messages of independence, personal growth, and transformation.”
Adam’s piece “Blue Belly King Runner” will be featured in Art for Life on September 15. See more of Adam’s work here at ahernandezart.com
