FEATURED WORKS

Color Dragon

On this back piece, you can see a great dragon with it's classic set of colors. Background is mostly soft grey tones so it has a balanced contrast with the dragon and Hernan's own twist on volume and composition.

2 -tiburon martillo y maples_ Otra característica de sus trabajos es darle importancia a u

Hammerhead shark with Maple leaves

Another angle of Hernan's work is the importance of one large main element and merging a second element with a third element (back ground) transforming 3 items into 1.

Black and Grey Dragon

Hernan's favorite imagery is the Dragon. In this piece he illustrates contrast in a monochromatic palette and how vibrant it can be once you add some warmer colors.
