Andrés Rodríguez Santos

Andrés Rodríguez Santos is a Puerto Rican artist with a long career in the arts. He has created a universe of suggestive images that explore human nature, including sexuality, myths, fears, and moral aspects. His work maintains technical rigor and a game of dichotomies: figurative, abstract, intuitive, and rational.
Rodriguez Santos lives and has his studio in Yauco, Puerto Rico, his hometown. He earned a BA from the Catholic University of Puerto Rico and an MFA from Pratt Institute in New York. He has had over 20 solo exhibitions and has participated in many international painting, printmaking, and drawing events.

For many years, my work has focused on developing an iconography, which allows me to approach certain aspects of human nature. Sexuality, fears of the occult, taboos, magic, and morality are modular themes in my work. I address this content with the explicit intention of transgressing social and moral conventions that have immersed humanity in a state of emotional, imaginative, and expressive modesty for centuries.
