Boulanger, Graciela Rodo was born in La Paz, Bolivia, in 1935 with a passion for two creative fields: music and painting. While studying at the School of Fine Arts in La Paz, she pursued her love for music by studying piano. Later, she continued her education in painting at the same school in Santiago, Chile. Rodo’s exceptional talent led her to Vienna, where she enrolled in the Vienna School of Fine Arts to further refine her skills.

In 1951, Boulanger Graciela Rodo held her first exhibition of paintings in Potosi, Bolivia. Since then, she has been honored with one-woman exhibitions across the United States, Europe, and Japan, showcasing her extraordinary talent. Notably, her exhibitions include a one-woman show at the Organization of American States in Washington, D.C., and the Museum of Modern Art of Latin America. In 1987, the Metropolitan Opera asked Rodo to make a special piece for the start of their opera season. This was a prestigious addition to her long list of commissions. In 1979, the United Nations commissioned her to create works for the International Year of the Child and again in 1989 for the World Summit for Children.

With her extensive scope, vision, and proficiency in a range of artistic media, Rodo’s exceptional talent has made her one of the recognized leaders in the contemporary Latin American art movement. Her unique blend of training in both music and painting, along with her global exhibitions and notable commissions, have established her as a prominent artist in the art world.
