Meet the Artist
In addition to making world-class playhouses, Rudi Monterroso is also a painter, a sculptor, and a performance artist. Rudi even invented an exciting way of painting with his feet!
I grew up in Guatemala and came to the U.S. when I was 20 years old. From the moment that I discovered Art, it has been a big passion for me. As a newly arrived young adult in Boston, Art was an art form where I could express all kinds of emotions without words and it provided a place for me to connect with people both from my own culture and from others. As a colorblind artist, painting people is one of the biggest challenges I have confronted but also opportunity to explore different art forms. After nearly giving up painting several times, I realized that not being able to see color is not a handicap because it emphasizes my ability to see and focus on forms and how light affects objects.
Sometimes what we think of as a weakness is our uniqueness. If we can embrace our uniqueness, we can find our strengths.
