Junar Rodriguez USA, b. 1992


Junar Rodriguez is a self-taught, Mexican-American artist whose paintings express what he describes as “multi-perspective approach to the configuration of the world.” Informed by his studies in music and architecture, his compositions occupy a dynamic space at the intersection of structure and chaos, where human forms and figures explode and reconstitute amidst a swirling cosmos of color fields, gestural lines, and impasto paint marks. Within each composition, Rodriguez’s figures and forms appear to be in a state of flux, or of becoming. Rodriguez lives and works in Chicago.
