ANDREW HERNANDEZ (February)
From the artist: Andrew Hernandez is a multimedia artist living in Sacramento. In Los Angeles he worked as an assistant props and set stylist for magazines like Wired, Hollywood Reporter, GQ, and Sports Illustrated. He worked with a variety of artists like Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Bud Cort, Faye Dunaway, Carrie Underwood, Hannibal Burris, Will Forte, Michael Caine, Michael Keaton, John Fogerty and many others.
He works primarily using watercolors, pen and ink on cold press paper, but also uses programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere and After Effects.
"I make things that inspire me or frustrate me or make me laugh. It's never settling and always evolving while still becoming more me. I put everything I am into my art and I like to think people recognize love when they see it."
Aside from painting, he enjoys making short videos using the compositing techniques that he has picked up from school. Using these tools, he creates live action shorts, motion graphics, and is also keen on making animations that are done frame by frame.
"I think there is real magic to the work that artists do; and, that bringing their ideas to life, whether it be something vulnerable, funny, sad, cultural, grotesque, psychedelic, etc., is all poetic and valuable to our existence. I feel it helps to bring a transparency to the world and an honesty that is not always spoken. It is what I hold most dear to my soul, and it is what will be constant in my life forever."
