Gamaliel Rodriguez

Gamaliel Rodríguez (b. 1977 in Puerto Rico) is a visual artist based in Puerto Rico. He works with felt, acrylic and ballpoint pen to produce aerial views of artificial industrial, military, and civilian structures in Puerto Rico and US territories. Memories are manipulated into dystopian, apocalyptic drawings that imagine the collapse of global infrastructure into ruin. Rodríguez received his BA from the University of Sacred Heart in San Juan PR in 2004; his MFA from the Kent Institute of Art and Design in 2005; and has participated in numerous residencies. Rodríguez’s work has been included in both solo and group exhibitions such as at SCAD Museum in Savannah, Georgia; Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico in San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Bronx Museum of the Arts in New York.
