September Featured Artist: Salvador Rodriguez

Our featured artist for September is a local painter who has always loved the wide-open landscapes of the Southwest. Born in Tijuana, Baja California Norte, he discovered his skills in drawing and painting. As a boy, he spent long periods appreciating and memorizing every detail of landscape and then put them into drawings or paintings. 

In high school, he participated and won first place at the local and national level, which won him a scholarship in the workshop at Universidad Autónoma de Baja California to study painting with Master Francisco Chavez Corrujedo. Here, he participated in several group exhibitions.

His work is the result of a detailed observational study of nature, which can be seen in the composition and balance of loud and soft colors, producing pleasure and tranquility to contemplate.
