Rodrigo Sastre lives in Mexico City. His work deals with comic books, science fiction and art history references. Since he was a child, he was caught by the world of American comics. He became interested in Art as a way to develop his drawing skills. Meanwhile collecting comics, he assumed Art as his profession and looked at the ways to maintain both interests.
His work is a research and an expression of his desire to understand and analyze the passion of collectors, both art and comic, the motivations involved to search master works, the history surrounding the construction of all the world’s collections and the way these can be known, shared, consumed, appropriated and transformed by the people.
His work incorporates drawings, sculpture, installation, artist’s books and video. He has exhibited in numerous urban installations Usted esta aquí Aeródromo; the site-specific piece De Tomaso Pantera in Los Cabos, BC. His works 1990 and Birome were exhibited at the Luis Adelantado Gallery and Urban Calligraphies at the Museum of Mexico City. He has published the book Sentóse a decidir in collaboration with Edgardo Ganado Kim, in which he builds a bridge between André Malraux’s oeuvre and the history of comics.
