Description
Favianna Rodriguez is an internationally renowned artist, activist, and teacher based in Oakland, California. Her bold posters and digital artwork deal with social justice issues such as immigration, globalization, economic injustice, patriarchy, racism, and war. Rodriguez works in a variety of graphic media, including digital art, silkscreen art, linoleum cuts, wood block cuts and monotypes. Her papers currently include graphic art posters and prints on various media, newspaper articles, designs and sketches of artwork, and a video from her talk at UC Santa Barbara. Her papers will grow over time to eventually include art sketches, lectures, correspondence, photographs, videos and more ephemera.
Background
Favianna Rodriguez is a celebrated printmaker and digital artist based in Oakland, California. Using high-contrast colors and vivid figures, her composites reflect literal and imaginative migration, global community, and interdependence. Whether her subjects are immigrant day laborers in the U.S., mothers of disappeared women in Juárez, Mexico, or her own abstract self portraits, Rodriguez brings new audiences into the art world by refocusing the cultural lens. Through her work we witness the changing U.S. metropolis and a new diaspora in the arts.
