Carly Ivan Garcia uses bold color palettes to express a dreamlike urban language.  His playful compositions and energetic gestures attempt to converse with the paradoxes of his place within society and self. 

 

Garcia has been represented in New York City by Tinca Art Inc., Art Now NY and AHA Art Gallery, and in San Francisco by Zener Schon Gallery and Rocha Art.  His work has shown internationally in both gallery exhibitions and art fair presentations, and has been acquired into both national and international Private Collections.  In 2010, ten works were selected for the motion picture film, Touching Home, starring Ed Harris, where they were featured prominently as the paintings of the film's protagonist.  In addition to his own work, Garcia has curated several large-scale art exhibitions in California featuring emerging and established American artists.
