Hector H. Hernandez development the interest in art to very early age. Growing, it spent long time doing what he enjoys more: to draw. He remembers to gain many aids of drawings in which he participated while he was in the elementary school. Now, its work represents several subjects including, diversity and celebrating the one culture. "My work transmits the messages of celebration of our cultural inheritance and the diversity that exists in the society of now. This this fact to give a positive message and using the education of one like a transformation instrument, "he added.

It works in murals, pictures and landscapes. Some of their works can be seen in the Oregon State University and Portland Community College. "My inspiration comes from the people whom they love to see a painting or a mural that reflects its culture and ideals. When I paint, I choose subjects that are related to the culture, landscapes and human figures, "said he. When I asked as it was its favorite painting, of his works, he said, "I like the mural that I paint for the OSU or the one that paints for the PCC. It is difficult to say as I like more so that each painting represents something very special for my." Their favorite painters are Siqueiros, Orozo, Arnold Belkin, Velasquez, Dali and Van Gogh.

In agreement with Hernandez which he enjoys more to paint it is the opportunity that it has to meditate. "the painting helps me to meditate on many implications that a subject can have and the form that takes on the linen cloth," said he. To him it would like that its work takes to a message and feeling of optimism and a continuous fight to improve the world in which we lived. Their greater inspiration in the life has been their parents, friends and professors.

Besides to paint, Hernandez is the Coordinator of Programs for Hispanic for the Center of Education of the Health of the Area of the Pacific de Oregon of the Oregon State University.
