The pinceHerman story: artist, actor, eccentric.
The artist princeHerman of San Francisco has been creating experiences and objects of interest for 43 years. He was born into the faded glory of an industrialist family. His paternal great grandfather amassed his fortune in metal, railroads, and bootlegging. Family enterprises ranged from exclusive contracts for distribution of Formica products as well as “intimate” hospitality for government officials. As the direct heir, his privileged childhood included tutors in the arts, museum membership and theatre patronage. The walls of his home were adorned with Picasso, Matisse, and Calder. And his affinity with the arts was cemented prompting him to decline admission to socially acceptable Deerfield Academy preferring more artistic cultural education.
In 1991 princeHerman graduated as a university scholar from Alfred University in the bucolic hills of western New York with a liberal degree in fine arts.
After graduating princeHerman’s work has been available exclusively by commission through referral, through well heeled Interior designers and private society events. That is until the global economic crash of 2009 prompted him to expose himself with public exhibitions.
princeHerman’s work has been in numerous juried shows including Illuminations at the Desotorow in Savannah, San Francisco City Hall supervisor’s office, Folsom St Fair, Tom of Finland weekend, The Seyhoun Gallery LA, a solo at MagnetSF and a solo immersive art experience at the Magowan Mirror Maze… to name a few.
His critically acclaimed feature film debut was made with the 2011 release of “Baby Jane?” he will appear in a reprisal of his role in the upcoming “Hush up Sweet Charlotte.”
princeHerman’s favored materials are copper, glass, plaster and precious metal leaf, pioneering new techniques along the way.
