Favian Hernandez is a Laramie, Wyoming based artist who primarily uses basic paper mache techniques, paper clay, acrylic paint, and found objects to create original paper mache sculptures, illustrations, and artwork that will be on display and for sale at the 6th Biennial Touchstone Laramie Art Exhibition hosted by the Laramie Artists Project.
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.
This is Favian's 2nd time exhibiting at Touchstone Laramie and his 3rd year as part of the Laramie Artists Project. This year he will exhibiting new paper mache sculptures and illustrations for the 6th Biennial Touchstone Laramie Art Exhibition on November 10th and 11th, 2018 at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Laramie, Wyoming.
