FRIEDAcommunity is proud to announce Manuel Hernandez first solo show and first exhibition in Philadelphia.

The artist was born in Iztapalapa, Mexico City, before migrating as a child to the USA. Hernandez paints large-scale works that integrate Aztec mythology, indigenous traditions, and symbolism, with contemporary life. The resulting paintings are shaped like hide paintings and scaled the size of fresco murals, anchoring his work in Native American graphic art traditions, and breaking away from European practices.

Opening reception: Friday, October 6,   6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
