Favian Hernandez creates a whimsical world where animals are inserted into the human experience. His primary medium most of his life has been pen and paper. Recently he has moved on to paper mache to realize his creations. This process was ignited by the memories of making pinatas with his mother as a child. You can see glimmers of its influence in his sculpting and painting techniques. As in his drawings, his sculptures mix eras, styles, and various animals. Some pieces are animal studies while others depict animals clothed, living out their lives in bygone days. These anthropomorphic creations move from the paper to be realized into something new and beautifully bizarre.
