Anthony Hernandez is an American artist
Episode 224: Anthony Hernandez is a much-revered artist and native Los Angelino.
It was an absolute honor to catch up with Anthony whose work has made a profound effect on me over the last couple of years. I have sought out a number of his publications and have felt deeply moved by his work. There is the social element to his work, but also the tireless and unrelenting commitment that Anthony exhibits towards growth and change over the course of his decades-long career. Landscapes for the Homeless is a shining example where the artist’s formal abilities coalesce with his concerns regarding the social landscape of Los Angeles.
Throughout the episode, we speak about Anthony’s beginnings in photography, growing up in LA, and how the pursuit of photography saved him from a life of trouble. We discuss the economics of Los Angles and how his various works came to be including his new work Screened Pictures (Thumbnail). The episode was filled with incredible insight from Anthony, a much-respected and necessary artist for our times. Please tune in to this episode and check out Anthony’s work wherever you can; a highly prolific artist, you will not be left disappointed.
