A great admirer of Rodolfo Morales (painter, 1925-2001), Francisco Jesús Hernández Pérez considers himself a self-taught artist. This is how he creates tissue paper collages, all whimsical, colorful and special.
He also creates wooden tendajónes, which for him are miniature stores. His use of scale comes naturally as he by trade an architect. The boxes for the tendajónes are ordered to his specifications but the entire process of his collage is his own. He also uses recycled objects in this work.
Francisco is also a designer of unique and inspired jewelry. He melts the silver, laminates, welds, polishes and then polishes again to yield the final piece. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind work of art that gives rein to his passion for design.
Francisco has participated in exhibitions such as the Best of the Best of Art in Action, organized by the University of Oxford, London, where he exhibited his work in the year 2013.
