(Sarasota, FL) Art Center Sarasota’s 2019-2020 exhibition season continues with “JAVO,” in Gallery One, a solo show by Puerto Rican artist and illustrator Javier Rodriguez.

Javier Rodriguez, known as “Javo,” was born in Puerto Rico and now lives and works in Sarasota. He creates intricate works on canvas that explore the beauty and tragedy of culture-making within his adopted society. “This new work gave me an excuse, an opportunity to expose myself one more time and travel out of my comfort zone to where every inch mattered,” he says. “These new paintings are a compilation of my vulnerabilities, risks, some wonderful accidents, and nothing more. They could also be seen as a bit bold and candid, maybe naïve, but definitely genuine.” Using strong line work, simple and sometimes provocative concepts, and an unstoppable urge for creating, Javo's work has evolved towards a style that is both bold and unmistakable. After studying fine art in Puerto Rico, Javo graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design and began his career as an illustrator recognized locally and internationally. He has exhibited in the U.S., China, Puerto Rico, Dubai and Russia. Javo is represented by Museum of the Americas in Miami and Chasen Gallery in Sarasota.
