Enjoy a guided tour of the extensive art of Henry Bermudez, a Venezuelan artist based in Philadelphia. The exhibition features approximately 70 works, detailing Bermudez's journey as an immigrant and seeker of political asylum since 2003. Originally a successful artist in Venezuela, he faced adversity when his work clashed with the political regime's cultural objectives. Seeking refuge in Philadelphia, Bermudez has spent the last 20 years evolving his art, blending mythological influences from Venezuela with reflections on displacement and Philadelphia's culture. From his roots as a painter, Bermudez now explores various media, creating large-scale works that incorporate cut paper, three-dimensional forms, vibrant colors, and intricate textures. His art continues to draw inspiration from Latin American mythologies, combining symbols from pre-Hispanic, Judeo-Christian, and Afro-Caribbean influences, while also addressing US cultural norms and his personal journey as an immigrant.
