Javier Hernández Soria, Jhers, is a Spanish artist. His work is mainly painting and sculpture, but he likes working in different ways, materials and stiles. ¿Do you want to know more about Javier?
Javier Hernández, known as Jhers, was born in 1950 in Tudela, a small town in the region of Navarre, in the northern part of Spain. With just four years, he moved to Cascante, the ancient Cascantum, Roman founded, a village between the Moncayo mountain and Ebro river, land of vineyards, olive trees and a deep farming tradition.
Javier´s father used to work as a station master of the railroad called popularly "Tarazonica" an old railroad closed in the 50s and converted as a bike path nowadays.
He started painting with the age of 21. The artist tried to show what he saw and what he felt on a piece of canvas.
But, what changed his life and consequently, his work, was his trips to Africa. In 1990, Javier went to Mali and share his time with the people and the culture there. He returned home completely different, and his life´s work made a decisive turning into whats it is now. In there, he spent time with the international well-known painter Miquel Barceló.
He returned to Africa four more times when he rediscovered the senses of the forgotten continent.
Jhers is a self-taught painter, lively and tireless person who aim to show people around him the way he understands his work. He tries out with different materials and colors, including bitumen of Judea, acrylics and oils on canvas, wood or sack.
Jhers and Miquel Barceló
After a prolific work dedicated to the painting, Javier started to experiment new ways for his inspiration, and over old olive tree wood, he created his first sculpture. Due to the huge acceptance, he carried on his new way of expression. Nowadays, Jhers owns a varied colection of works made with olive tree wood and its roots, iron, stone and beech wood.
"If I haven´t been a painter, it would have been difficult achieve what I did: to make sense my life, to enjoy what I do" - Jhers
