Hello- My name is Adal Hernandez born 1973. I am an artist living and making my visual work in NYC. Originally from Chicago, I was raised between Chicago and Texas (Brownsville, on the border of Mexico and Austin). I have been making visual art since I was around 10 years old. I studied at the Art Institute of Chicago in it's Early College Program for three years, while making art my main focus in high school. Aside from that, I have learned through apprenticeships, working as artists' assistant, practicing on my own and exchanging with peers. I have been tattooing professionally since 1993, after studying under Chicago's Tattoo Tom for the previous year.
I hope you enjoy the examples of my work shown here. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
