Like the elegant and exotic women in her paintings, Miami artist Talia Rodriguez has style and beauty we can’t help but covet. Born and raised in the 305, her roots stem from a Colombian-Cuban heritage that seeps into her paintings, supplying those vibrant colors in her work. Walking through her home near The Falls, we were immediately taken by her style—a potent mixture of island bohemian and European nomad, with just a dash of Miami nights. Like her work, her aesthetic is ever evolving, tailoring itself to the situation at hand, whether it be paint-splattered dresses for teaching art classes or bright pieces for a busy day running around to the galleries. To grab some inspiration on and off the canvas, we rummaged through her studio and closet, and chatted with her about Miami's art scene, influences, and browsing haunts. Pretty picture, indeed.
