A STORY OF CREATIVITY

PRESERVING MEXICAN HERITAGE THROUGH OIL PAINTINGS

Dear Legend,

Not all artists realize the importance of their contribution in preserving or re-imagining the world.

Regardless of where you are from, your life experiences are reflected in what you create. It need not even be art. Anything you do can have a positive effect on the world around you.

HORACIO RODRÍGUEZ

MEDIUM: oil painting

INSPIRATION: charming historic streets of Mexico

LIFE LESSON: Pursue your dreams, and encourage others to do the same.

Inspired by the charming historic elements of Mexican architecture, Mexican culture, and colorful elements of everyday life, Rodríguez creates beautiful oil paintings with great attention to detail that help preserve a part of Mexico's soul.

Rodríguez was born in Juchipila, Zacatecas, a picturesque town named after Xochipilli, the Aztec God of art, games, and flowers. It is in Juchipila that he first dreamt of becoming a painter, when he took fifth grade art class. His dream lay dormant for many years, while he took up a different profession as a means of livelihood.

Dreams, however, have a way of resurfacing. Sometimes all a person needs to start a dream is encouragement. Rodríguez' received support from his brother and thus began his journey to become a self-made painter. He bought oil painting supplies and painting magazines. He tried new techniques and learned most of what he knows through trial and error. His oil paintings are proof that even when life gets in the way, it is never too late to follow your dreams.
