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.
