Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, artist Rodrigo Mateo now calls New York city his home. He studied at the University of New York, New Paltz earning a degree in photography before continuing on to complete the four-year painting program at the Grand Central Academy in New York. The reality Mateo creates on the canvas is one of subdued harmonious color and simplified beauty. His education in photography taught him that a well-framed scene can create a wonderful image from the most ordinary of situations. An attention to composition and a painterly style combine to make his work uniquely beautiful.
