"My art is simply a reflection of how I see the world. For me, illustrating is the easiest way to communicate. I use cartoon imagery, my sense of humor and my imagination to express my thoughts. The world around me is the reference I use to create my art."
Alvin Hernandez is a Miami based artist/illustrator. He attended at Miami International University of Art and Design, where he studied Visual Arts (BFA). His art is a mixture of Cartooning and Surrealism, with a touch of humor. His inspiration comes from his everyday experiences, which he uses as reference to create his art.
