Best known for his visual art translations, Dr Gorilla (a.k.a David Rodriguez) has made an incredible impact with dynamic paintings that are filled with thought-provoking messages. He has a gift for sharing relational topics and spiritual matters through his live interpretive performance paintings.

Whether his live painting is for music, dance or spoken presentation, his approach generally begins with serious research and alignment to the content he will compliment. He uses this understanding to then create a piece that combines an illustrator's method of storytelling with the delivery of traditional fine arts.

Dr Gorilla has created complimentary interpretive paintings for thought speakers, successful entrepreneurs, church leaders, and a variety of performers. His artistry has been experienced by a diverse collective of businesses, organizations, performers and churches throughout the U.S., including TEDx SMU, Samsung, Bishop T.D. Jakes, John Deere, Erykah Badu, LifeWay, Daystar Television, Halftime with Bob Buford, Leadership Network, and Dr Pepper.
