Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA
Ramiro Hernandez’s painting practice focuses on youth, beauty, aspiration and self-discovery. Having grown up in San Diego, the artist’s work is influenced by the suburban and coastal landscapes of Southern California. Dominated by dusty and warm pinks, purples and greys, his paintings highlight the beauty and wonder of the area’s awe-inspiring atmosphere. Hernandez’s paradisiac snapshots are gently pervaded by concern, they tenderly contrast the beautiful elements against the invasive pollutants and wildfires that ravage the area. Ramiro Hernandez has exhibited extensively throughout California, including exhibitions at Bozo Mag in Los Angeles (2021), Nino Mier Gallery in Los Angeles (2020), and the Tecoah and Thomas Bruce Galleries at the California College of Arts in Oakland (2010). Hernandez graduated with a BFA in Painting from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco in 2010.
