About the Artist: Born in Oaxaca, Rolando Rojas is inspired by the legends, stories, and myths of the Zapotec culture that have permeated his life in Mexico. In his colorful paintings, Rojas portrays this mythical world and interweaves it with deeply personal narratives formed out of the artist's own experiences, present and past, many of which are drawn from his childhood growing up in Tehuantepec. Recurring motifs, such as the cosmos, the sun and the moon, and a series of mysterious creatures (both real and imaginary) inspired by his grandmother's storytelling, are hallmarks of his paintings and printmaking, as are universal themes of fertility, sensuality and music.
