Jorge Ismael Rodríguez (Zacatecas, 1960) is a three-dimensional artist who has developed intervention strategies using public art and peripheral spaces. For 25 years he has been using obsidian to create sculptures, becoming one of the great masters of cutting obsidian.

He usually gives his works symbolic values; It ritualizes the processes, and promotes the emotional, reasoned intervention of the public, whom it calls -symbiont art-, to consolidate the experiential spaces it builds.

He has participated in more than 200 art events, and has several recognitions among which stand out; First prize at the II International Exhibition of Ultratual Art of Brasilia in Brazil and Artist of the Year for the South-Vancouver cultural project in Canada.

Throughout his artistic career, he has developed large installations, settings, performances and other experiences of reestablishing cultural ecologies.
