Hermes Berrio (b. 1980, Colombia) captures the significance from his everyday life, relating it with a grand scope that emphasizes both the mundane and the extraordinary. With reality as the foundation to his practice, Berrio creates a vibrant narrative and a personal reflection on the world. Finding inspiration in these unusual and yet commonplace experiences, the artist explores the complexity of such simple moments and renders them on a monumental scale. He has re-imagined, re-arranged, and metamorphosed visions of a cultural and personal landscape, seeking new ways to interpret one’s truth visually.

Hermes Berrio studied art formally in New York, and has since grown his artistic career in Miami. In recent years, he has participated in group and solo exhibitions around the world for galleries and institutions in the U.S. and Colombia, Spain, Germany, Mexico, Australia, and Canada. He’s also completed a number of murals, with the most recent installations throughout the city of Miami. In 2018 he was awarded a grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and in 2019 from the Ruth and Harold Chenven Foundation. He continues to evolve his practice, investigating new processes and mediums, while challenging contemporary expectations with his prodigious compositions.
