Mark

Rodriguez

(Visual Artist)

Mark Rodriguez is a Tampa, Florida visual artist who’s work is a twisted ride through reality and the subconscious where the lines become so blurred they cease to exist. His predominantly self-portrait work is a blend of elements from pop culture, humor, horror, and all points in between that often collide–yet blend–in conceptual bliss. His images are steeped in story and hidden meanings and they frequently juxtapose the familiar with the unexpected
