Guest Artists Exhibit & Demonstration
Angelo State University will present a public exhibit of prints and other artworks by guest artists Carlos Hernandez and The Amazing Hancock Brothers beginning Monday, Aug. 27, in the Carr Education-Fine Arts (EFA) Building, 2602 Dena Drive.
Titled “Los Weirdos Texino,” the exhibit will feature the artists’ unique, collaborative and powerfully raw acrylic paint and serigraphy prints and collages. It will be open for free public viewing in the EFA Building’s Gallery 193 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through Sept. 14.
The Amazing Hancock Brothers will also host a “Mash-Up” art demonstration on Thursday, Sept. 13, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Room 239 of the EFA Building. The demonstration is also open free to the public.
Based in Houston, Hernandez is a graphic designer, illustrator and printmaker who is renowned for his poster art for various musical artists and events, as well as advertising campaigns. He has produced poster art for such musicians as Santana, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Steve Winwood, Florence and the Machine, and Stone Temple Pilots – and for music events like the annual SXSW Festival and Austin City Limits productions. He has also contributed to award-winning national advertising campaigns for Miller Brewing Company, Google, Lincoln Motor Company and others. He is also a lecturer and visiting artist at Rice University and owner of Burning Bones Press in Houston. Examples of his art are available at www.carloshernandezprints.com.
The Amazing Hancock Brothers, John and Charles, describe themselves as “Texas outlaw printmakers.” They spontaneously collaborate on 20-50 artworks simultaneously, using screen-printing and random colors of ink and acrylic paint on paper, fabrics and blocks of wood to create a wide variety of printed images. Their art has been described as bold and intense, vexing, eye-catching and pleasurable with a certain enticing mischief. Both earned their Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees from Baylor University, and John is a printmaking professor at the University of Mary Hardin Baylor. The brothers are both members of the Mid-American Print Council and Southern Graphics, and are regulars at the Annual Ink Slingaz Ball in Austin.
