Wanderlust is an international group exhibition inspired by travel, far-away places, adventurous experiences and fascinating destinations. Participating artists were given identical postcards and asked to create a unique piece for the show inspired by the theme “wanderlust”. Travel via boat, plane, foot, and yes, even jellyfish to your favorite destination in this eclectic and imaginative exhibition!
Rodrigo Cifuentes was born in Jalisco, Mexico in 1980 to Spanish descendents who immigrated during the 1930s. Growing up in a violent landscape shaped his pictorial temper. He further developed this at the National School of Painting, Sculpture and Graphics; La Esmeralda (ENPEG) in Mexico City.
Cifuentes’ work first permeated the public arena in 2001 when he was selected for sponsorship at the Mexican Art Festival Expresarte, today his works are also part of the Secretaria de Hacienda y Crédito Público Museum Collection.
As an emerging Mexican artist, Cifuentes analyzes the dichotomy of the Latin American myth and the American dream in his society. The deafening presence of an expressionist scream speaks to that social discontent, approaching such subjects as the unreachability of the American dream, loss of innocence, and mass consumption.
Rodrigo Cifuentes currently lives and works in Queretaro, Mexico.
