Javier Hernandez was born in 1984. Raised in East Oakland, his first encounter with art was the graffiti that covered the walls of his neighborhood. Earlier works reflected the darkness, death, and poverty of the Oakland streets in the 90s. Through art he learned to channel that trauma into what he now calls "Uncle Bobby art."
His work reaches toward the darkest corners of the psyche and finds the spaces that have light shining through. Extracting a playful way to deal with that darkness. Through a diverse array of media, Javier has moved away from traditional methods to create an arsenal of nonsense for the senses.
