Henry Bermudez’s distinct style has grown from his love of myth, religion, and legend. The elaborate and twisting forms of his art seem to encapsulate how an idea can become crystalized, stylized, or enhanced by the fear, adulation, and obsession of the mind. He was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela. As a young artist, Bermudez was shaped by his experience teaching in the small coastal community of Bobures where, as Bermudez states, “religious and social syncretism provided a unique vision of the African Diaspora in the Americas with its symbolism and iconography.” Since moving to the United States in 2003, Bermudez has explored elements of American culture through the lens of his upbringing and his understanding of mythologies. He has created a unique and powerful body of work filled with the complexity and contradictory facets of identity.
