Darian Rodriguez Mederos was born in 1992 in Santa Clara, Cuba, where he attended his first two years of art school at Leopoldo Romañach. His last two years of school were spent at the famed San Alejandro in Havana.

Mederos works primarily in oil on canvas.

Ironically the one thing Mederos was afraid to paint were faces; he committed himself to doing so. The artist is drawn to the light in his subjects eyes, and the expressive nature of their visage. Rodriguez considers himself a realist, with his feet firmly planted on the ground. He has no interest in the surreal, finding sufficient inspiration in reality. Mederos has experimented with textures and the slight deformation of facial features, but never alters the natural shape of the face. He creates both realist and photorealist works.

Rodriguez Mederos is relentless in his pursuit for perfection, though he knows perfection is an impossibility. He quotes Leonardo DaVinci, "Art is never finished, only abandoned."

Darian Rodriguez Mederos' work can be found in collections in North, South, and Central America, and the Caribbean. He currently resides and works in Miami.
