Interview: Sign Painter Rodolfo Cardona

 

Originally from Sonsonate, El Salvador, Rodolfo worked as a graphic designer for a newspaper before coming to Los Angeles to pursue work as an artist. Both his acrylic paintings of life in El Salvador and his commercial work for local businesses and public murals often depict colorful, cheerful details. He invited us to his studio/home for an intimate interview about his life and work.
