Los Angeles native David Rodriguez grew up in the midst of Hollywood venturing on to creative sets and eventually set out to explore his natural talents while studying design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. A born artist, he quickly gained recognition for his life like portraiture and fashion sketches which notably displayed his artistry for creating innovative color palettes and skillful shadowing. It was there that he began viewing the face as a canvas and transitioned his love of painting into make-up artistry, special effects and hair styling.
While continuing to hone his skills freelancing for such reputable brands as NARS, MAC and Shu Uemura he would eventually join several styling teams for both New York and Los Angeles fashion week, photos for studioRevolveclothing.com and hit TV shows like America’s Next Top Model who approached him to jump on board the glam team for four consecutive seasons in addition to touring with Adam Lambert on his “Glamnation Tour.”
Through his years of experience, David has developed an impressive celebrity clientele including actresses Kat Graham, Christina Milian, Jenna Dewan Tatum and Kathy Griffin as well as recording artists Adam Lambert and Dej Loaf. His work has been featured on networks such as Bravo, MTV and The CW and has appeared in printed publications including Elle, Glamour, Seventeen, Latina, Nylon, Harpers Bazaar, and Vogue.com
