ARTIST INFORMATIONBIO  

Artemio Rodriguez

Artemio Rodríguez was born in Tacámbaro, Michoacán, Mexico in 1972. He studied agronomy at the Universidad Autonoma Chapingo and was later introduced to art when he apprenticed and learned letterpress printing from Juan Pascoe, a master print maker working our of the Taller San Martin Pescador near Rodriguez’s hometown. As a print maker who works primarily in black and white. Rodríguez’s signature style emphasizes simplicity and clarity. Though comfortable working in a wide variety of artistic media, Rodríguez regards his ten years as a print maker as the beginning of a long quest. His larger goal is to keep exploring and promoting printmaking until he feels he has contributed something important to the medium. He fully expects this to take a lifetime. Rodríguez’s work has been featured in galleries in the United States and México. He has also illustrated and published several books. In 2002 he founded La Mano Press.
