Sergio Rodriguez

Sergio Alfonso Rodriguez Garcia

(Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico. 1983)

 

His work responds to an exploration of a formal and thematic nature, which he defines through painting and graphics with everyday elements, plant forms or landscapes.

The figurative aspect of his work, quite attached to tradition, accentuates a certain tension between the prosaic and the metaphysical.

 

Bachelor of International Trade at the University of Guanajuato 2011

He began his artistic learning in a self-taught way, until he met the late Guanajuato landscaper Jesús Gallardo Carrillo, who guided him for two years.

He entered the then National School of Plastic Arts (current Faculty of Arts and Design of the UNAM) in 2013 and during his career he specialized in metal engraving under the tutelage of teachers Eugenia Figueroa Mendoza and Jose de Jesús Martínez Alvarez.

Study one year of the degree at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain for a mobility scholarship from 2016 to 2017.
