Favianna Rodriguez is a celebrated printmaker and digital artist based in Oakland, California. She is known for her bold imagery and vibrant humanist composites reflecting social movements, migration, globalization, and the changing cultural landscape of the United States. By engaging new audiences as subjects and participants in her art, Rodriguez interposes private and public space, the art viewer and participant, the museum and community. Favianna’s artwork reflects local and global issues – such as war, environmental destruction, and immigration policies. She posts her pieces in public spaces— schools, community centers, and the streets— where they become tools with which to organize and inform, images of transformation rather than resignation. Her pieces are acts of public intervention, expressing some of the most serious issues affecting communities. For more than a decade, Rodriguez has built her career as an artist and social entrepreneur, exhibiting at Museo del Barrio (New York); Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Los Angeles); Mexican Fine Arts Center (Chicago); The de Young Museum and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco); and internationally at House of Love & Dissent (Rome) and Parco Museum (Tokyo). She was a 2005 Artist-in-Residence at San Francisco’s de Young Museum, and is recipient of a 2005 award from the Center for the Study of Political Graphics. She has lectured widely and is co-founder of three organizations dedicated to advancing the print arts, harnessing new technologies, and educating young printmakers and muralists.
