This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Adan Hernández is a modern artist whose work merges neo-expressionism with Chicano-noir.  The aesthetics in his art evoke emotions of alienation, uncertainty, desperation and loss, which dominate the Chicano experience.

In describing his work, Hernández says, “The high drama and highly charged content in my work reflects the day-to-day epic struggle of life in the barrio.  Here, the challenge to overcome overwhelming adversity, which we celebrate in films, is a common occurrence.  I feel my work is about the priorities in my life and the experiences that have shaped it.  These moments seek eternal life in my art.''

In 1991, Adan's work caught the attention of film director Taylor Hackford (“La Bamba,” “Devil's Advocate”), who signed him up to create more than 30 original paintings, drawings and a mural, and to star in a cameo role for the 1993 epic barrio-cult-classic, “Blood in…Blood out.”

Hernández has been a serious artist since 1980.  His work has been exhibited in museums in the U.S. and Mexico.
