"I like that I can express myself through art. There are no limits."
Rodrigo and his wife, Yani, came to Costa Rica because they wanted to build an artistic life and community here. They were attracted to the fact that they could live and work in proximity to nature and tranquility in Ciudad Colon. There is so much culture and art in this town. Plus, they get to enjoy the sun everyday. Rodrigo believes it is noble to be able to express himself personally through art. There are no limits. Rodrigo has a dream to make Ciudad Colon the first mosaic city in Latin America. Wherever he goes he believes he can contribute something that will make the place more beautiful.
Rodrigo's entire family is artistic and he grew up around his father who is a writer and a painter. He has always been interested in developing his own art and grew up doing painting projects alongside his father. Rodrigo studied art at the University of Bella Artes in Argentina. He also has a certification in carpentry. After numerous workshops and courses on art, paint, carpentry, drawing and mosaic, Rodrigo decided he wants to focus mainly on mosaic art. He likes that he can create something with ceramic and tiles, as if it were paint.
