Freddy Rodríguez is a Dominican-born artist, based in New York City since 1963. His main influences are Rembrandt, Paul Cézanne and Piet Mondrian. By fusing Renaissance and modern traditions, Rodríguez creates colorful eye-catching geometric shapes that incorporate elements of Abstract Expressionism, Pop and Minimalism.
Rodríguez describes his work as a political message. By creating an illusionistic space infused with flattened surfaces, contrasting loose and tight brush strokes, vibrant colors and zigzagging lines, he expresses his anguish over the impact of colonialism and subsequent dictatorships on the Caribbean.
