Rigo Havana, Cuba | 1969
Rigo (José Rigoberto Rodríguez Camacho) was born in Havana, Cuba in 1969. Through expressive brushstrokes and color, he brings human emotion and the essence of being to the surface, fashioning from it the human form in ways often turbulent, but always honest. Focusing on the human form and the face as a recurring image, he paints obsessively, each one conjuring a different personality.
Rigo graduated from San Alejandro Fine Arts Academy, Havana, in 1987 after graduating from the Escuela Elemental de Artes Plásticas 20 de Octubre in 1984. His work has been included in both group and personal exhibitions in Cuba, Mexico, El Salvador, Italy, Canada and the United States and is part of private collections in Cuba, Ireland, Costa Rica, Mexico, France, the United States, Italy, Canada, Greece, Poland, Russia and Portugal.
Rigo currently lives and works in Havana.
