William Hernandez trained at Lima's Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes (1995-2002), and moved to Portland in 2009. He creates both figurative and abstract paintings with his distinct vision, incorporating intense colors, warm figures and humor. The work of William Hernandez has been exhibited in galleries and cultural centers from Lima to Portland, including Instituto Cultural Peruano Norteamericano, Centro Cultural de Espana, and several venues around Portland. In 2007 and 2008, he participated in the U.S. Embassy's Noche de Arte: the largest art exhibition in Peru, a show that generates funds for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). In 2011, his work was exhibited throughout La Luna Nueva festival, a Portland event sponsored by PGE Foundation, The Oregonian, and supported in part by a grant from the Oregon Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts. Aside from painting, Hernandez worked as a graphic designer for both public and international institutions in Lima and worked as an art teacher for El Museo de Arte. He was one of the organizers for the first Intercambio de Artistas Latinos (Latin American Artists Exchange), which aims to create a network of artists in the Northwest to share ideas, expression and art.
Hernandez’s artwork are in private collections in Spain, Lima, Germany, Guatemala, Chile, France, Australia, Belgium and the United States.
I have more than 15 years of experience teaching in the public and private sectors. Currently I am a SUN art instructor in public schools in Portland and Gresham. In addition, I offer private classes in my studio in Northeast Portland. I love sharing my passion as a professional artist with people interested in discovering more about how to be creative and incorporate art into their lives. My method is to be honest with those that one wants to manifest, from a small child to an adult.
He is very professional.
