Raul Rodriguez is a graduate of Bachelor of Fine Arts, major in Painting in 1984 at University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City and took his Master of Christian Studies at the Alliance Bibilical Seminary from 1995-2002. Raul G. Rodriguez, a visual artist of punk slant in the 80’s, is also an animator, minister and a long-time confrere of RM from their UP days. He “explore(s) the tributaries” initiated by his wide variety of influences that ranges from Caravaggio to Matisse to Rothko to Chabet, pursuing the visual surprises when juxtaposing such images that would hopefully lead to new ways of seeing. Shedding light on his method, he mused that he “treats the theme or the idea at hand as a poetic interplay between chosen colors, recognizable elements, the ambiguity inherent in the properties of paint/painting in itself, the expected desired results and the improvisational rapport I experience in the art process.” Furthermore, he noted that “Style can either be your aesthetic prison or a stepping stone to knowing more of the possibilities of the visual language.” Worked for 9 years as assistant animator & animator in Burbank Animations Studios, Salcedo Village, Makati (1985-1988), Fil-Cartoons Inc. Pioneer St., Mandaluyong (1989-1994) and TOEI Animation in West Avenue, QC (1994). Currently working as the Head Minister of Harvesters Christian Fellowship Ministries in New Manila area, Quezon City.
