Rogelio Rodríguez "Mojo" was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, in 1991. At the beginning of his career, he worked as an assistant in painters' workshops inside and outside of Mexico; once in it, his intuition led him to continue in the arts, it being only a matter of time before he found himself creating work and searching for his own voice. Through his work, Mojo seeks to provoke moments of reflection that come from the most sincere of each person. One of her goals as an artist is to achieve the development of a language that is digestible, that regardless of nationality, race or gender can be understood without the need to explain it. Being able to attribute meaning to an object gives meaning to your daily life. This is how Mojo's work creates questions that all humans have raised at some point. His production is characterized by experimentation with different techniques and materials. It was from 2020 that the creator delved into ceramics, at the same time he began to deal with processes and materials of an industrial nature such as aluminum and acrylic; all with the aim of achieving its purpose: “expression”. The artist proposes a reading of the world as a crucial element to live. Being sensitive to what surrounds him, observing and knowing that he is being observed generates curiosity, the motor that is activated when he feels a connection with some object, song, image, texture or feeling. Mojo thanks those who have been part of his process, both personally and professionally, those who have believed and continue to believe in him.
In 2012 he met the American painter Dianne Neuman who would later become his mentor. In 2014, his first exhibition was held at the DN Gallery located in San Francisco, California, at the same time he developed the on-site project "Encuentros" where he wrote more than 700 poems for different people in the city. He worked with sculptor Nicolas Weinstein, developing abstract glass structures for the artist's installations. In 2015 he traveled to Berlin, Germany, to develop his first on-site installation resulting from the residency at STRAY KOLLECTIVE and followed up on his project "Encounters" poetic action. In 2017 he held his first individual sculpture exhibition at Estudio Libertad in Guadalajara and was part of the collective exhibition "Macario" in London. In 2020, he concluded his residency at the Estudio Libertad workshop after having explored resin as a rigid support for his sculptures. In this same year he began to explore alternative media to his usual production such as ceramics, wood, acrylic and aluminum. Giving birth to his collection, still in development, entitled: "Dose of Humanity". Mojo currently works and lives in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, his work is exhibited and is part of private collections in Mexico, the United States and Spain.
