Juan Rodriguez Sandoval is a Guatemalan born, Australian interdisciplinary artist, based in Melbourne, Australia.

Rodriguez’s work investigates and documents the ideologies and themes of locality, transnationalism (immigration), metaphysics (amongst other philosophical fields) and environmental/historical preservation. Additionally, his work tends to reflect and create fictional spaces or working on once existing spaces that have now become historically and geographically distant.

Rodriguez’s work is often informed and molded by archaeological, pantological and astronomical methodologies. He works with an array of earthly, found, everyday and recycled materials, and contemporary technologies.

Juan’s current practice is heavily experimental, and through his work, he aims to bring a consensus to further remind the spectator(s) on environmental preservation, as well as, ethical and moral approaches to art-making.

When he’s not making art, Juan plays drums for Post-punk/Noise-rock outfit, ‘The Bad Bad Randys’, reads philosophy, archaeology and astronomy articles, and hangs out with his dog Chewie
