Natalia Nicole Rodriguez
Natalia Nicole Rodriguez' artist alias is 2BLEENE (pronounced in Spanish as “doble-ene”). She was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and currently lives and works throughout Europe.
In 2018, Natalia graduated from Universidad Del Turabo with a Bachelor's in Graphic Design. She has held solo shows and participated in group exhibitions at various esteemed art institutions in Puerto Rico and New York. Her impressive portfolio boasts clients including Hilton Hotels, San Juan Marriott Resort, Serafina Hotels, Absolut Vodka, Corona Extra, 1800 Tequila, and Häagen-Dazs.
Natalia's work is an expressive contemporary abstraction between her encounters with flowers, nature, and her years of experience as a graphic designer. Natalia's process begins with documenting floral elements in her environment and travels to then transform them into long lasting memories, palettes, and textures.
2BLEENE's admiration for flowers and nature itself began many years ago in her grandmother’s garden, that was filled with flowers and various tropical plants. Over the years, she became dedicated to the idea of creating her own interpretation of nature, which ultimately resulted in a subconscious desire to discover new flowers and plants each day.
