André Rosenzweig Rivas- Artist
I am an indigenous figurative painter based in Oakland, California. I have lived half of my life in the United States and the other half in Honduras. I work primarily with oil colors but I am comfortable with other mediums. The lens through which I view the world stems from my identity as an artist, an indigenous person and a peripatetic adventurer. I see my work as a constant search for meaning in a chaotic universe. That meaning is often grounded in my identity as indigenous person. My art lies in the space between the everyday and the fantastical. I consider art as myth-making and believe it is through myth-making that we can better understand ourselves and our world.
