DAVID HERNANDEZ was born in Zaragoza, Spain, and has lived in Omaha for the last 10 years. Hernandez studied Graphic Design at MCC and currently works in the design/production field. He loves the simplicity of drawing and painting more than any other art form and although he does digital work, he believes that for him, creativity starts with a pencil or paintbrush in hand. Primarily self-taught, his preferred medium is oil painting. His urban landscapes capture unique views of the places he has been. Recently, he exhibited for the Bemis Benefit Art Auction, Raw Artists and displayed in Benson First Friday. At a young age, David looked up to artists like Picasso and Van Gogh and found it fascinating that they could be rebellious when painting with oil. Today, his goal is to keep creating by staying inspired, and to keep inspiring others.
