Cherman, Graphic Artist
Cherman (Germán Quino Ganoza) is a graphic artist known for his portraits of more than 300 Peruvian cultural, historical, and political icons. Influenced by comics, cartoons, TV series, urban life, and gastronomy, Cherman’s work aims to showcase and reflect the multifaceted dimensions of Peruvian society and identity—often with humor and incisive social commentary. Cherman will reflect on his art over the past 30 years, discuss the roots of his pop aesthetic, and share the philosophy behind his current work in Chermany, an imagined nation where graphic art exists in its purest form and where everything is possible.
