Gerardo Rosales a visual artist born in Venezuela now living and working in Houston, Texas.
Rosales started producing art as a self-taught artist and subsequently attended the Armando Reverón Art Institute in Caracas, Venezuela where he earned a BA in Fine Art. After graduating he moved to London to study at Chelsea College of Art and Design gaining an MA in Fine Art.
At university Rosales became more resourceful in the use of mixed media and started producing more social-oriented works. His themes provide a contrast using the fascination for patterns and ornaments normally seen in decorative objects of everyday life to confront the viewer with images that deal with issues of violence, repression, sexuality, abuse of power and loneliness.
Rosales has exhibited his work in the US and Internationally.
