Savannah College of Art and Design, 2007, MFA Printmaking
Lucha Rodriguez received her MFA in Printmaking from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2010, and her BFA in Graphic Design from The Art Institute of Atlanta in 2006. Her work ranges from etchings, monoprints and colorful silkscreens, to immersive multi-layered installations of cut paper, each created with pink – the artist’s signature color. Rodriguez intricate cut-paper constructions recall the inner workings of the body and the books of medical illustrations that fascinated her as a child inspire her forms.
Born in Venezuela, she has been featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout the U.S., Mexico, India, Hong Kong and France. Her most recent commissions include a commemorative, limited-edition print created exclusively for Oscar de la Renta’s premiere exhibition at SCAD FASH - Museum of Fashion and Film.

Rodriguez’s live television interviews have been broadcasted on Café CNN Morning Talk Show with TV Host Lucia Navarro as well as CNN Español, Encuentro con el Arte, Arts and Entertainment, with Glenda Umaña.
In 2011, she was the recipient of the Forward Arts Foundation's Emerging Artist Award and Creative Loafing’s Best Emerging Artist of Atlanta.
