Artist: Alepsis Hernandez

Alepsis Hernandez is a self-taught artist based in Long Beach. Her portraits explore the lives of individuals who are part of her community and personal life. The achromatic palette or her drawings or paintings allow viewers to focus on the subject’s qualities and bring individuals of different subcultures together to create a stronger sense of belonging.


<p>Kid, an image of a young girl born and raised in North Long Beach, was one of many paintings and drawings that were produced over&nbsp;a 3 year span while artist Angela Willcocks was working with 6021 Atlantic, a gallery and shopfront space for working artists, community and conversation. Over the course of those years, this girl and her extended family would visit the artist at her studio and have their pictures taken together.</p>
