Gennaro Garcia Brings "You Are Art" to Royse Contemporary January 2019
By: Royse Contemporary
His process is something that one just doesn't see done today "utilizing a combination of Italian techniques from working with oils, acrylics, wood, plaster blended with a vibrant color palette from his childhood growing up in Mexico" says Garcia. Garcia has created a powerful body of work paintings and sculptures that are peppered with religious references, his heritage while blending old and new world. "Art is addictive and therapeutic, it is the best way to communicate the way I feel, think, love", declares Garcia.
You Are Art showcases the artist's latest collection of work incorporating and exploring various mediums including painting, prints, ceramics, and sculpture. Garcia says his passion, as an artist is to "create art in every single technique, style, color and texture." "His artwork is infused with familiar imagery and subjects inspired by both Mexican and American identities, religious references and his heritage, states Nicole Royse, Owner/Curator of Royse Contemporary.
Garcia has extensively exhibited his artwork in more than 80 exhibitions in the last 5 years and his work is featured in 10 galleries in USA and Mexico throughout the United States and Mexico. He has been featured in numerous local and national publications most recently in Phoenix Home & Garden, Phoenix Magazine, Arizona Foothills Magazine, Phoenix New Times, and Univision. Garcia is also the resident artist at Xico Inc.- Latin & Native American Arts Organization.
In early 2018 Garcia partnered with Aaron Chamberlin to open Taco Chelo in Downtown Phoenix, highlighting the traditions of Mexican food and his artwork. To date he has handled the interior design of 7 restaurants, featuring his art and furniture design including Taco Chelo and Chamberlin's newest restaurant Ghost Ranch. Garcia just finished a permanent art installation at two different wineries in Mexico, as well as installing a large collection of his artwork at Talavera at the Four Seasons Resort in Scottsdale. For the last two year's Garcia has had the pleasure of working with Disney, being invited to speak about his life as an artist and to create a mural with his daughter in Mexico. Lastly he is set to open a gallery in Valle De Guadalupe, Mexico next summer.
