William Hernandez

I am a figurative artist who paints exclusively with acrylic on canvas. In my artistic process, there is always a period of reflection and observation before the production of my latest series. When I pick up my paintbrush, it is often a hectic rush of artistic outlet to transpose the contents in my head to the canvas. Acrylic, with its fast drying properties, works best with my style. I rarely use sketches, so my creations are spontaneous and unannounced, and sometimes even surprising to myself. The colorful, imaginative, dreamlike, and at times melancholic world that I create in Portland is both a combination and rebirth of my life as the artist I was in Peru seven years ago. I weave together memories, experiences, lessons, loss, friendships, achievements, and feelings. Portland’s colors contrast with the beautiful landscapes of the interiors of Peru, but the gloomy backdrop of Lima also contains magic and rituals beyond what is found in a more intimate city like Portland.
