Rolando Chang Barrero is a South Florida native born in Coconut Grove. He has a BFA from the School of Art Institute of Chicago and also attended the Oxbow School of Art, Penland School of Crafts, and has participated in various internships with paper makers and filmmakers. Barrero’s newest work is a series of paintings that explore the relationship between childhood toys and gender, in which he takes a deeper look at toys and color assignments — the feminine vs. the masculine and whether color has any impact on the assignation of gender to toys. Barrero’s awards and accolades include the Ryerson Traveling Fellowship,New Times Best Art Walk 2013, and New Times Best Exhibition 2014. “I'm pretty much a subversive artist,” says Barrero. “I create really approachable, one can say, cute images that have really serious intellectual and political context.” Barrero has also created a plethora of programs to elevate the art scene in Palm Beach County, as he is director of the Boynton Beach Arts District, president of the Florida Arts Association and Art Synergy, and owner-curator of ActivistArtistA Gallery in Boynton BeachThe Rolando Chang Barrero Fine Art Gallery in Lake Worth, and a soon-to-be third gallery called the White Box Gallery in West Palm Beach. His work can be seen currently at Art Boca Raton,Tedds Art Works in Fort Lauderdale, and the Gallery at the Center for Creative Education.
