Superheroes do exists, and they have walked among us, they are the Martin Luther King Jr.’s, Albert Einstein’s and Bruce Lee’s. Like many of the superheroes I grew up reading in comic books, these people were not always perfect. They struggled. They made mistakes. And they have failed. But more importantly they got back up and tried and tried again. Hello, my name is Fernando Del Rosario and The original art collection I have created is in honor of what has inspired me through out the years as an artist, creative director, designer, son, brother, husband, father, mentor, teacher, and friend. It is a creative and expressive merge of fictional superheroes with real life memorable heroes. I invite you to explore and dive into a creative expression 32 years in the making.
