Mr. Rodriguez’ work deals with the particular issues that arise from a separation thru exile. “I make paintings, prints, and mixed media works that are rooted in my experience as someone who finds it difficult to identify with a cultural group”. As a native Cuban, he has lived most of his life in the United States. Most recently he has been awarded a  2006-07 Individual Artist Excellence Award from The Ohio Arts Council.

He is currently the Head of Studio in the Department of Art at the University of Toledo, Ohio USA. Mr. Rodriguez has had numerous exhibitions nationally and abroad. He holds a Bachelors Degree of Fine Arts in painting and printmaking from the Kansas City Art Institute, and a Masters Degree in Fine Arts from Indiana University, Bloomington.
