PAINTER / WATERCOLORIST

Full of riotous, crackling colour, Hermzoo’s paintings embody the landscape, animals and people that surround him.
Although Hermzoo was born and raised in some of the most rural parts of Pennsylvania he has exhibited his whimsical, cutting, absurd artwork across the United States, Europe, Russia, and Australia.
Hermzoo explains that these paintings are his vehicle to poke around the hills and valleys where he lives and see what pops up. He’s riffing on the landscape, the inhabitants – and himself. Sometimes what he stumbles upon is real, sometimes invented -it doesn’t really matter. The paintings are real. The rest is a mystery.
