Journey to the underworld, a mixed media exhibition by Ernesto Hernández-Olmos

October 12-November 3, 2018
Reception: October 12 • 5–9pm

Ernesto Hernández-Olmos was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, and formally educated in plastic arts at The Autonomous University, Benito Juarez of Oaxaca, Mexico. He has been a practicing artist for over twenty-five years. Currently, he runs a wide variety of art and cultural programs in the Bay Area drawing inspiration from the rich Oaxacan art landscape.

Ernesto has displayed his work in some of the most prestigious art venues in North America, including the National Autonomous University of Mexico City (UNAM); the Oaxacan Institute of Culture; the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; the De Young Museum, the Legion of Honor and the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco; and in Canada, at the Olympic Stadium of Montreal.

Ernesto is a multi-faceted artist who expresses through various media, including but not limited to, painting, sculpture, music and dance. He creates his own musical compositions and even designs his own instruments, which include flutes, drums and whistles. He has also created several murals, including the ones displayed at the MacArthur BART Station in Oakland and one at La Pena Cultural Center in Berkeley.

“I am an artist because it makes me feel good when I am able to materialize my artistic ideas from the spiritual to the material world. The spirits of my people guide and inspire me to share my artistic creations with the world. I see myself as a creative instrument through which the culture and values of my ancestors are expressed in modern times.”
