Ramiro Rodriguez's creations in both paintings and prints focus on figurative representations of psychological narratives, often utilizing "water, light, shadow and unusual vantage points to instill a sense of importance and mystery to everyday relationships and states of mind." Rodriguez's art has been prominently featured in promotional materials of multi-platinum rock band Tool, and his work has been exhibited and won awards in several solo and group shows. The theme Rodriguez applied in Herencia "comes from the idea of carrying one's history around at all times. This history includes all the ancestral memories and life struggles that converge into creating who one is today—the past's constant informing of the present and the future."
