SAVANNAH, GA — If you have attended any of Savannah’s Latino festivals on River Street or Port Wentworth’s annual feast of Our Lady Of Guadalupe, you have seen the artistic talents of Adolfo Hernandez on display.
Adolfo was born in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, México and raised in El Paso Texas. Quiet and soft-spoken by nature, he uses his brush, canvas, and aerosol paints to make bold visual statements that capture the attention of all who witness his larger-than-life efforts.
He also paints smaller canvases and has exhibited his work in many local art galleries.
Growing up in a border world where members of his immediate family were effected by gang violence, Adolfo has developed a painting style that incorporates both surrealism and graffiti art.
Last month was a busy one for Hernandez as he first participated in a collaborative art project at the Fiesta Latina on River Street, then was honored to add the final graphics to a public art project in midtown Savannah sponsored by SeeSAW.
Created in 2011, SeeSAW organizes, coordinates and funds positive, Savannah-centric themed murals in the public domain.
