Adam Hernandez was born and raised in the Bronx to a family of musicians and performers. As a child, the bravado and vibrancy of the graffiti that covered every surface of his city spoke to him.  With the city's inspiration and the encouragement of his oil-painting-grandfather, Hernandez set down an artistic path.  

Throughout his career Hernandez has also found inspiration in the works of Pablo Picasso, Egon Scheille, Francis Picabia, and Paul Cézanne as well as the Abstract Expressionist Movement, the Lowbrow Art Movement, and comic books. 

Hernandez currently resides in Columbus, Ohio.
