Juan Carlos Muñoz Hernandez is an artist that combines graffiti art, sculpture and oil based paintings to create a fresh cultural expression. Part of the renowned and highly respected LA based graffiti crew, K2S, his roots are very much in the graffiti street art style. Originally from Mexico, Juan Carlos has over 20 years of artistic experience and now works out of the esteemed Robert Graham Studio in LA where his work is heavily influenced by the urban landscapes of his surroundings.
Juan Carlos’s works range in materials from acrylic, ink, pigment on paper, wood, and canvas, to multi-dimensional cast and fabricated bronze sculptures, with patina and powder-coat.
