Diango Hernández

Cuban, b.1970

 “Waves are the language of the sea. A language that can be used for painting, for creating images of a more fluid world, a world without rigidity a liquid world.”

I was born near the seaside, it took me years to understand and value that entire experience. Years ago when I did my first wave drawings I felt somehow “arrived”, at that point I reached what I so much searched for my completeness. The beautiful mornings by the sea, diving inside corals and crystal clear waters seeing fish that were so beautiful and peaceful, those days as a young boy I was truly happy, somehow complete.”
