Adam Hernandez “Only Bangers” at Lindsay Gallery
6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Loindsay Gallery hosts the opening of Adam Hernandez’s “Only Bangers” exhibit. Hernandez is a self-taught artist who lives in Columbus, Ohio, but his influences are wide ranging; he finds inspiration in street art, graffiti, hieroglyphics and his Hispanic heritage.
In his own words:
“Most of the marks in my work come from personal experience: growing up as a Puerto Rican in the Bronx, my relationship (and reaction) to my religious upbringing, and my views on society today. The fierceness of the Godmasks is a direct reaction to my dealings with fear, anxiety, and depression for most of my life. They are meant to personify attitudes and mentalities we can adorn when dealing with the things we struggle with most. They are encouragement that we can roar at the hindrances and obstacles in our lives and overcome them.”
