Artist: Roco - Rodrigo Oñate


October 9th through November 1st 2020


Roco's work represents man's relationship with nature and the Universe with anthropomorphic characters, dreamlike and fantastic worlds as reinterpretations of the traditions of various cultures of Latino America through a combination of colors, textures and intricate shapes capable of evoking traditional native graphics with techniques such as illustration, watercolor, enamels, acrylic, and inks.   The originality in the method and the message of his work have led him to participate in many exhibitions and cultural projects in Mexico such as Arca Galería and Gamma at CDMX, Museo de la Ciudad in Querétaro, Galería Bernardo Quintana UAQ; and in the United States at the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago IL, UNAM Chicago IL, Gamut Gallery in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Pilsen Arts & Community House in Chicago IL, and Kent University in Ohio.

His pieces are part of public and private collections of entrepreneurs, investors and art institutions. He has collaborated with brands such as Don Julio Tequila, Vans, Osel, Surly Brewery, Indeed Brewery, and QuickSilver, Tec de Monterrey, Viñedos del Márquez, Cerveza Minerva, Ocesa, Dark Matter Coffee, among others. He currently resides and produces work in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco.
