My friend and fellow artist is mixing it up in Southern California! As a musician and painter/sculptor, Richard Rodriguez utilizes dreams the way we all wish we could. As an eternal motivator for a life of beauty.
Raised to accept all the Mexican, African, French, Hindu and Christian roots in his family tree, Rodriguez brings the collage of his life into his art. Rick paints on canvas and found objects. He creates contemplatively in the studio and live at music shows. He is also the Conga player for L.A. based band Mexico 68.
“ I decided that art was all I wanted to do , “ says Rodriguez, “for as long as I lived…I’m inspired by everything; Life, happiness or sadness; people in my life, dreams, new teachings, and the unknown…Struggle love and loving life is inspiring. Even hating life is inspiring you just got to create something out of it!
Enjoy some pictures of Rick’ s work, including pieces from his latest show, “Somos Animales.”
