Herminio Negron is 48 years old, and has a passion for expressing life through his artwork. He was born in Bronx, N.Y. and started drawing pictures when he was just nine years old. For the last 8 years Herminio has been living in Providence, R.I. and now has over 250 pieces of art. His signature name on his drawings is “Wato”, and he enjoys using oil based and acrylic paints, as well as pastels.
Herminio is often seen carrying his sketchpad around on his travels. He also did a mural on the outside wall of the Compare Market on Broad Street. Some of the artwork will be displayed in the upcoming issues of Street Sights (one of them was in our February issue). The drawings that he brought to our meeting were incredible; Herminio truly is a great artist. If you want to contact him, give him a call 401-454-0169.
