In early spring of 2018, Adam Hernandez was passing through Milwaukee from Columbus, Ohio and requested permission to paint one of his “Godmask” series on our walls. The Board granted him his wish and we are so lucky to have this piece in Milwaukee’s mural collection.
In a 2018 article for PBS, Hernandez commented, “In my day to day life, I am an artist and muralist who is very heavily influenced by Mayan art. Especially the reliefs and glyphs of their kings and rulers. I am also very influenced by graffiti and street art. For most people, those two styles are very different and almost uncomparable. I think they are the same. “
