Edel Rodriguez was born in Havana, Cuba in 1971. He was raised in El Gabriel, a small farm town surrounded by fields of tobacco and sugar cane. In 1980, Rodriguez and his family boarded a boat and left for America during the Mariel boatlift. They settled in Miami where Rodriguez was introduced to and influenced by American pop culture for the first time. Social justice, poster art, and western advertising are all aspects of his life that continue to inform his work. Recently, Rodriguez’s work has focused on the political issues of our time. Resist. references some of the dangers faced by our country at this time—how a nation built on immigration must stand up for the rights of new immigrants seeking the American dream.
Throughout his career, Rodriguez has received commissions to create artwork for numerous book publishers, advertising agencies, and editorial publications. He is a regular contributor to the The New York Times Op Ed page and The New Yorker magazine. He has created over a hundred newspaper and magazine covers for clients such as TIME Magazine, Newsweek, Der Spiegel, The Nation, The New Republic, and The Village Voice. Rodriguez's artwork is in the collections of a variety of institutions, including the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C., as well as in numerous private collections. His work has received a variety of awards from The Art Director’s Club and The Society of Illustrators in New York City.
