“Rodriguez is known for two kinds of portrait styles that he calls, “Topographical Portraiture” and “Type Faces”. Topographical Portraits, are made by stylizing a portrait with topographical lines and shapes in a similar manner to those found through images on geographic maps. Type Faces, incorporate typography and portraiture. Rodriguez developed these techniques in order to explore his interest in social, historic, and cultural hybridity.” See more of his work below.
