Samuel Rodriguez aka Sam Rodriguez

San Jose, CA

"I am based out of San José, California and have been fortunate to have my work shown in public art spaces, museums, companies, galleries, internet, and editorial publications. For a number of years I was self-taught through the graffiti scene, until I later decided to expand my studies by pursuing a Bachelor in Fine Arts from California College of the Arts. I have since blended what I absorbed from both experiences to create my current style. At the moment, I am interested in two types of portraiture that I call, "Topographical Portraiture" and "Type Faces". Topographical Portraits, are made by stylizing a portrait with topographical lines and shapes in a similar manner to those found through images on geographic maps. Type Faces, incorporate typography and portraiture. I developed these through countless studio sessions, to use as a platform for my interest in social, historic, and cultural hybridity."
