Daniel Rios Rodriguez
“As a painter I have always worked with what is closest to me. I believe that working from a place of visual and emotional experience allows for a greater individual spirit to drive the making of a work of art. As a teacher, I encourage students to pursue their own ideas through new and sometimes challenging means. What will result is not only learning at every turn but often a glimpse of the energy that keeps us all working.”
