Born in Havana in 1981, Walter John Rodriguez has spent most of my life in New Jersey. His love for drawing and painting developed at an early age in Cuba where he made every effort to learn artistic skills despite having limited resources. After immigrating to the U.S. in 1995, his continued interest in art motivated him to seek formal art training graduating in 2002 with a B.F.A. degree from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He believes that the power of intention can lead anyone on a path to any imagined goal. To him, art is a life affirming priority that manifests through new ideas and restless invention. His work has been included in many private collections in addition to multiple group exhibits in Florida, California, New York and New Jersey.
