Piet or Pierre Rodriguez is a self-taught painter from France, now living in Brussels. From a very young age he found joy in playing around with pencils, but only discovered his passion for painting in 2012. After completing his studies in hotel catering, he turned to the field of advertising. The creative aspect of the job sparked his interests and allowed him to work with people who were active in the same sector. He got in touch with the hosts of a small painters expo, and couldn’t resist the urge to experiment on a canvas himself.
From here on out he embarked on a journey towards creating realistic portraits and compositions between surrealism, symbolism and graphic deconstruction. His works are mainly with black and white, where light becomes the key and focus that brings out the soul of his painted subject. At the end of 2015 he got introduced to the world of spray painting and street art by the Propaganza collective. It allows him to experiment with a new technique on a new medium.
