About Fidel Rodriguez
Fidel Rodriguez is a fine artist who transcends and morphs his current dimension, riddles his work with his own enlightening experiences. Feeling compelled to communicate clearly with his audience and entertaining conversations surrounding self-discovery, Fidel embeds an esoteric meaning in his creative process.
“Elements transform each other in a process that drives them through and into their environment, bonding their energies and giving them new qualities, bringing them into harmony and balance”
This transmutative effect is his starting point.
The relationship of each element represented in his art ends up being what you see, his perfectly calculated misfits.
His early career was inspired by “Tauromaquia,” alongside his bullfighting grandfather. His bedroom walls served him as his first canvas, and since then on he excelled in any arts education program that he was a part of. He studied Graphic Design at the age of 17, he went on to earn a UNESCO scholarship to study Painting at the Armando Reveron University in Caracas. He was one of the youngest artists exhibiting at the 5th National Biennial of Drawing in Caracas, and at 18 he was represented by Ars Forum propelling him into the art scene.
In 1996, New York City welcomed him as a set designer, up until Fidel was presented with his first serious gallery representation in the United States by Monique Goldstrom Gallery, in Soho where he got a glimpse of the art business.
