Mural Project: Jesse Hernandez & Victor Quiñones

Saturday, April 23, 2011 - Friday, June 10, 2011

Galería takes a break from its digital mural series, to present a painted billboard by Jesse Hernandez and Victor Quiñonez. The mural was created for Galeria in conjunction with the exhibition "Cultura & Old Schools Ways" featuring drawings and photographs selected by Cholo Style Magazine.

Jesse Hernandez’s art combines traditional indigenous styles and themes with an urban street sensibility. His work utilizes bold line work, sharp colors, and dynamic imagery across many different mediums, most widely known for his custom painted toys, illustration, and canvas work. His style also draws upon his animation background. Hernandez currently works full time for The Filipino Channel as Art Director/Co-Creator of the cartoon series “The Nutshack” , and creates freelance artwork through his company, Immortal Studios.

His artwork has been featured in many books and magazines such as Maxim, YRB, Giant Robot, Clutter, Playtimes, Dot Dot Dash, Great new Characters, Flux, and has participated in art shows all around the world. He currently has toys out with Kaching Brands, and Toyqube, and future releases with Kid Robot, Upper Deck, Minigods, and Super Rad Toys.
