Hernán Sosa was born in Arequipa, Peru on September 12th, 1965.
He usually lives in Lima but travels all around the world going to art fairs, individual, and group art exhibitions. He studied Fine Arts at the Catholic University of Lima, Peru, then painting and drawing at the “Escuela de Bellas Artes Carlos Baca Flor”. The work of Hernán Sosa is the result of an authentic passion for painting, extremely synthesized, thanks to the exceptional formal means at his disposal..
“Since I was a shy little boy, I used to be immersed in the world of drawing and spent hours on end in this imaginary world.” -Hernán Sosa
His magnificent technique, his dominance of drawing, oil paintings, acrylic techniques and watercolours allows him an uninhibited freedom with which he draws on to support sensitivity in work that transcends from the merely representational to a sensual and plastic language of unlimited possibilities. Consummate artist, he inflames the spark that awakes in us expectations for an incomparable work of art. He is now developing a new facet in his art; sculpture.
