Rude Calderón was born into a family of artists and sculptors in San Jose, Costa Rica, where he spent the first seven years of his life. His family emigrated with him to Los Angeles, California in 1964 where he has remained all his life. Rude’s father apprenticed and worked in his uncle Manuel Zuñiga's sculpture studio from his youth to early twenties. Much of this knowledge and tradition was passed on to his son Rude from an early age.


Calderon's art explores the aesthetic manifestations of our cognitive world, as it seems tobe informed by unending waves of energy and consciousness in nature. His respect for the materials is borne of his recognition of their intrinsic natural beauty and dynamism. Stone sculpture, for this very reason is the major focus of his creative work. Both public art and studio art are of importance to his ongoing body of works.
