He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BFA in Image and Design with a minor in Sculpture from the Escuela de Artes Plásticas de Puerto Rico. Luis Rodriguez has participated in several exhibitions of the EAP and several alternative spaces and institutions within Puerto Rico; such as the Antiguo Arsenal de la Marina Española, Museo Casa Blanca, La Productora, 20/20 and Área: Lugar de Proyectos.
