Daniel Hernandez
Associate Professor of Interdisciplinary Art/Foundations

Dan Hernandez received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2000 from Northwest Missouri State (Maryville, MO) and a Masters of Fine Arts in 2002 from American University (Washington, DC). Hernandez's paintings explore the visual dialog between religion, mythology, and pop culture. He is represented at Kim Foster Gallery in New York City. His work is exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions and has been written about in a number of publications including ARTnews, HyperAllergic, Artillery Magazine, Arte Fuse, Gizmodo, Der Spiegel. Dan was selected for an Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellency Award in 2011 and in 2015.

Artist Dan Hernandez creates intricate tableaux that blend religious iconography with the contemporary visual language of video games, two genres which somehow collapse seamlessly together in farcical send-ups of culture and society.
