Julissa Arlene Rodriguez, also known as JAR has established herself as an upcoming artist of our time. She has studied art in various institutions throughout the course of her life such as Cooper Union, The Art Institute of New York and Temple University. She experiments with mix media to create a unique style that exemplifies her artistic vision. By primarily focusing on the use of geometric visual anthology and adaptations of octopoda anatomy; she strives to shine light on subjects that revolve around femininity and society’s concept of beauty. She has also dwelled into the world of poetry to further personify the metaphoric relations of mind, body and spirit. By continuously searching and refining all talents to bridge the gap of visual art and spoken word, Julissa longs to inspire and bring forth beauty into the world.
