T he themes of Antuan Rodriguez’s work is just one of the many
things that makes him stand out in a city of great artists. A
prime example is The Other Dimension, which the Museum
Of Contemporary Art North Miami is using to launch its Art Basel
season. The exhibit reveals an artist who sees the universe from a
range of diverse, scientific, philosophical and cultural perspectives, all
integrated into one single approach. “My work is based on principles
of positive vibrations, searching visual narratives to become high
enough to connect to the universal spirit of intention, infinite time
and codes of genuine global communications,” he says. “Art gives me
life — it’s my playground to explore animate and inanimate objects.”
A notable highlight of his 28-year career was project Base Paint,
where he produced and curated 10 world-renowned contemporary
artists with the goal of building a school in Haiti after the earthquake.
Future plans include focusing on his film company, Alquimia Film, and
turning The Other Dimension into a documentary film. “It’s already in
the making,” he says; AntuanArt.com.
“The process to create art is a laboratory that
inspires my spirit and keeps me going non-stop. I
started painting when I was 4 — by the time I was
7, I already had my first exposition in Moscu.”
