Dagoberto Rodríguez

Caibarién, Las Villas, Cuba, 1969

Currently lives and works between Madrid and Havana

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.

Combining architecture, design and sculpture, his work employs humor 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.
