About hermes berrio

My work validates the responsibility of visual artist as the historian of our time; it is a recording device of the world today. By absorbing and processing the world around me, ideas come through me and back into the world to confront where and what we are in society.

By keeping myself close to urban inspiration, I have dare to create and not to be afraid to discover. The viewer is conditioned to accept art works as art only if they are created in a traditional manner, to appreciate art works that originate and develop outside of these constraints is quite the opposite. The nature of my project is original and imaginative because it studies contemporary urban elements and situations; it explores the artistic process of creator to viewer. In my current work, I explore themes that conceptually involve aspects of our every day experiences; taking inspiration from the most unusual but common places you could find, always trying to raise awareness to the simplest aspects of life, these sometimes hide the most important and extraordinary things for the human imagination.

Our world occurs on its own terms, it is our responsibility as humans and as artists to know as much about it as we can, to focus and find new ways to interpret the purest aspects of life. Our ways of seeing have been influenced by the biases and expectations of the classical ideas of perfection, but is by challenging the tradition of classical art that much of the modern art will draw its power.
