Rodrigo was born in Henan China in 1979. In many respects, Rodrigo was fortunate to have been born at a time of China’s changing attitudes towards the outside world as well as the direction its people were to take in the New China itself. The world was opening up as Rodrigo went through his youth. Rodrigo was curious about everything. Gifted artistically Rodrigo took lessons in various art forms, eventually selecting oil paiting as his choice of expressing his artistic level. In 1999 Rodrigo graduated from Henan University of Education. Over the next few years he worked at several art related endeavors while developing his skills as a professional artist. In 2003 Rodrigo entered his first major art exhibit being held in Hong Kong. By the next year he had won first place in the Beijing Art Expo During the next few years, causing an almost third dimension of beauty, he worked for additional art companies in Beijing. It is interesting that China probably has more working artists that the rest of the world combines. By 2012 Rodrigo finally realized a long held dream by entering a relationship that led to his wonderful landscapes and nature scenes being shown in America. Hi works are being enthusiastically received by a growing number of collectors.
