Rodrigo Figueredo is an Italo-Venezuelan artist. Concerned with the social and political evolutions of world affairs, he has become one of the most relevant dissident artists in the world, defending human rights through his art. Along with artistically documenting current affairs in Venezuela, Rodrigo paints today’s world as it unfolds: from the struggle of Kurdish women, to the issues raised by immigration. He explores contemporary topics with a philosophical and symbolic take, while also working on more intimate works.



“I believe that an artist has the mission to paint the times. Art is a weapon of mass creation that exists to fight ignorance and to save and build identity. I use my art to fight for freedom, human rights, and to grow, both personally and collectively.”

— Rodrigo Figueredo
