Dagoberto Rodríguez was born 1969 in Caibarién, Las Villas and graduated from Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA), La Habana, Cuba in 1994. In 1992 he co-founded the collective Los Carpinteros. Their works have been exhibited in Museums and cultural institutions around the world, such as MOMA, Whitney Museum of American Art, Guggenheim in New York, Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Tate Modern in London and Museo Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid among others.
Dagoberto Rodríguez is currently based working between Madrid and Havana. Combining architecture, design and sculpture, his work employs humour and irony to comment on core topics in art, politics and society. Watercolor forms a very important part of his creative process, it is a way of collaborating, registering and revising his ideas. Often these reflect a fantasy of a possible conceptual situation.
