The Golden Boy

Bodeck Hernandez

Long Beach painter and illustrator, Bodeck Luna Hernandez is interested in bridging the divide between childhood memories with the Digital Age. An immigrant from Manila, Philippines, Hernandez has been creating pieces that compund the sensory habit of replaying a distant visual memory while pixelating expired recollections. Exploring the relationship with bosth nostalgia and modern society’s heavy reliance on disposable technology and consumerismis a recurring theme in his work. His personal approach with his background in street art heavily influences his illustrative works. From commerical and private commissions to album covers, he likes to bind the community by showcasing local talent and businesses.
