Guest Artist Arturo Garcia
We are delighted to welcome activist, writer and painter Arturo Garcia as our Guest Artist in July/August.
Jaliscan émigré Arturo’s technique of painting with palette knives, along with his love for color, results in an exciting combination of the abstract and the figurative. His work harkens back to that of the Huichol Indians of Mexico and the colors he remembers seeing as a boy – ultramarines, violets and magentas.
Arturo also partners with the Boulder-based Americas Latino Eco Festival as a steward of Graficomovil, Mexican artist Artemio Rodríguez’s mini-museum and community printmaking studio on wheels, and his paintings are in galleries in the Denver area as well as in Mexico. His style is classified by art scholars as Figurativismo Fauvista Moderno, Modern Fauvist Representational Art, although Arturo, being self-taught, prefers to just call it modern art. His exhibit at pARTiculars will run through August 31.
