BIOGRAPHY

Rosendo Sandoval was born in Tamaulipas, México in 1957. When he was two years of age, his family moved to the state of Nuevo León, back to the place where they were from. His father died in 1968. This caused the family to immigrate to the United States two years later. Once they arrived in the U.S., they settled in Weslaco, Texas. After graduating from Weslaco High School in 1977, he attended Pan American University where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art in 1982. Later on, he decided to continue his education and received two masters’ degrees in Art. A Master of Science in Art from Texas A&I University in Kingsville, Texas and a Master of Fine Arts in Art from UTPA in Edinburg, Texas. Today, Mr. Sandoval resides in Elsa, Texas where he lives with his wife and kids. He works as a full time Art teacher for the Mercedes I.S.D., and paints on his spare time.


For the last few years, he has been focusing on his culture as the subject for his paintings. His paintings always emphasize a good use of composition, color and contrast.

Artist Statement

Since the late 1990’s my painting style has been gradually changing. In 1999 I decided to look at my culture for inspiration and I came up with a large painting that I call “La Piñata”, and ever since that time all I am doing is related to themes that I can find in the Mexican and Mexican-American cultures. My works are done in a semi-realistic romantic style. I like to use what I call the three C’s in all my works, that’s composition, color and contrast.

I usually start a painting by researching the theme and working out the composition. My second step is to decide on the color scheme that I will use, after that is done, the next step will be to transfer the sketch to the panel and start the painting. I always use an imprimatura or an under painting before I start with the over painting or top layer. At the present time, I hold an M.S. in art from Texas A&I University and an M.F.A. in art from UTPA.

The artists that have inspired me are the Mexican Mural painters such as Siqueiros and Jorge Gonzalez Camarena.

At the present time, I am a member of the Upper Valley Art League and I have participated in both group and one-man art
exhibits. I have exhibited my work at IMAS, The Rio Grande Valley Art Museum, The Narciso Martinez Cultural Art Center and the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art. Some of the awards that I have won include a first place painting and an honorable mention painting in the oil painting category at the Brownsville International Art Show in 2006, and a best of show painting also in the oil painting category at the Brownsville International Art Show in 2008.

Some pretty designs alright. Doing the painting yourselves is more fun but a good place for ideas for more design is this site of wahooart.com, that I use to help with my wall decorations.
You can browse for a painting like this The tree, by 20th century Czech artist, Frantisek Kupka, for example, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LHUQV , that can be ordered on line and delivered to you.
