We are happy to announce that our featured artist for our upcoming sixth issue is Joel Hernandez.
Joel Hernandez is traveling artist who migrated to Indiana as a child from his border-town home in Mexico. He attended Indiana University where he received his bachelors of fine arts with a focus on photography. After college he moved to Texas where he reconnected to Tex-Mex culture and a thriving gay community. He ran a pop up shop where he explored other mediums that eventually lead to his focus on papermachesculpture. Joel gave up his full time job at a photography non profit to focus more on his art and has exhibited and published his work both nationally and internationally. Currently he travels the country making papermache sculptures inspired by the cities that he temporarily inhabits.
We are happy to collaborate with Grand Central Arts Center, Artist-in-Residence, Sarah Rafael García in her creation of SanTana´s Fairy Tales project. This project is an oral history, storytelling project, which integrates community based narratives to create contemporary fairytales and fables that represent the history and stories of Mexican/Mexican-American residents of Santa Ana.
