Art Wednesday: Alfredo Rodriguez
The big apple
Artist: Alfredo Rodriguez (1954 - )
Born: Mexico (Tepic, Nayarit), now a resident of the USA
Contemporary American artist
I just love this artist, his work is so beautiful - I could look at it for hours, with all its vibrant colour and detail - not everyone will like these, they are often considered to be "commercial" aimed at making money for the artist rather than great works of art. Some aren't masterpieces but they have a sweet innocence's that I like. Do check out the link at the bottom as I have only provided a small group of paintings, there are many other excellent pieces.
Rodriguez was born in Mexico, one of nine children, he painted to supplement his families income. A professional artist since 1968 now paints as a professional, with his art appearing in a range of books and exhibitions around the USA. His rich and vivid colors depict scenes of the American West: Indians, mountain men, cowboys, nestled in the mountains, deserts, and Indian villages plus adorable delicate paintings of children.
