Hernain Bravo

Born in 1977 in Mexico.
Lives and works in Mexico City, Mexico.

“Bravo´s work derives from small events documented on photographs or video. These events generate situations aiming to disturb the viewer’s perception and to activate the space where they are carried out…

Started his career knitting a framework in the other side of the art circuit (and he stayed there for years) the streets. With a provocative moral vision, Bravo Works from the actions that have helped him building a net where he can move, as a skilled acrobat, in the deep ends of the cities where he lives, and the marginalized characters that generate the invisible, deep, underground life, the pile of invisible layers that make up social stratums and the economical-political-social morphology of the big cities.

He made reference in his work on vagrants, prostitutes and the mainly public space.”
