Gabriel Rodriguez exhibition in Tendencia Avenue

Gabriel Rodriguez was born in La Paz, Baja California Sur in 1991.






A self-taught visual artist, Gabriel is currently studying philosophy at the Autonomous University of Baja California Sur (UABCS). His passion for the visual arts led him to explore different areas with painting as his axis. He has also dabbled in photography, video production and sculpture.

The focus of his work is based on concerns such as time, space and the constant reflection of the landscape. Examples include works that explore the deconstruction of the latter to interpretations of it as a dream space and the construction of devices that put its qualities in crisis, making it a space of exception.

Gariel is the youngest artist to win first place in the 2014 Antonio Lopez Saenz Biennial of Visual Arts awards in Mazatlan, Sinaloa. Also the youngest to receive the acquisition prize in the 2012 and 2015 Carlos Olachea Boucsieguez Biennial of Visual Arts awards.

He has receive three honorable mentions in the painting category at the 2010 Carlos Olachea Biennial of Visual Arts, the 2012 Antonio Lopez Saenz Visual Arts and at the 2013 Northwest Biennial of Visual Arts.


In addition, his interest in literature led him to venture into illustrating covers and interior pages in publications for the Northwest Regional Cultural Center and UABCS. In 2011, he completed all the illustrations for the 2011 Tijuana National Poetry Prize with the visuals - poetic work “Hablar al cuadrado” (Square Talk). He won a 2011 university poetry prize for the work “Libro de voces” (Book of Voices) and the 2013 Todos Santos Short Story Competition in the youth category with the work “Newspaper, prensa para leerse en ninguna parte” (Newspaper, printed to be read nowhere).
