Artist Bio:  Rodney D. Butler is a native Houstonian. Graduate of James Madison High School where he excelled at art, woodshop and drafting. After graduating from high school, received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Tuskegee University and later an Associate degree in Computer Animation at the Art Institute of Houston. While at the Art Institute, Rodney realized that he was an artist at heart. This by the way came as no surprise to those who watched him growing up. Rodney’s work has been featured in various local festivals, galleries and museums such as First Saturday Art Festival, Houston Fine Art Festival, the Bayou City Art Festival, Houston Museum of African American Culture Bert Long Jr. Gallery, JoMar Visions, Texas Southern University museum, Harambee Art Gallery, Adam and Madam’s Gallery Bistro Shop, Gallery Baroness and countless underground art shows.

Artist Statement:  I am a modern-day Renaissance Artist, meaning I draw, paint, cook, do architectural design along with digital art, and photography. Now while my paintings are coming increasingly popular, I’m best known for what I call “Green Metal Art” it’s where I take scraps of metal and / or mechanical parts deemed unusable by most standards and weld them into various artistic shapes, forms, figures and concepts. It’s my way of recycling trash into artistic treasures.
