Bruno Hernani is an artist and engineer who currently lives and works in Regina, Saskatechewan. In his artistic practice, Bruno works with a variety of media including paint, photography, and sculpture, occasionally drawing inspiration from engineering practices as well as from music.
I really like the works in which Bruno combines multiple disciplines -- like in his artworks that utilize elements from musical instruments. Extended Violin, for example, combines traditional painting elements with structural pieces from a violin. The instrument’s wooden frame serves as a centrepiece while the strings break through the bounds of the artwork’s frame and wrap around it.
In our previous feature of Bruno’s work, we looked at the way the artist expresses introspective concepts, weaving intense and personal narratives with bright, welcoming colours and undulating forms. This dual sense of introspection and approachability is present throughout Bruno’s current art portfolio.
