Jonathan Rodriguez is a figurative painter who works primarily with oil on canvas. He graduated from the School of Visual Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree.

His work forms through a continual dialogue between imagery and paint. Rodriguez's technique repeatedly departs from, and returns to, the Western classical definition of picture making. His images are drawn from eccentric fragments of current news, film, and personal experiences. 
 

In an investigative process of automated sketching and writing, Rodriguez dwells in a space of uncertainty. He then brings these studies to a finished state. The result is an eclectic stream of consciousness.
