Fernando Garcia is a young Queens, NY based artist and is of Colombian descent.

Although having experimented with sculpting, watercolor, printmaking and photography, he concentrates mostly on painting in acrylics and oils combined with mixed and non traditional mediums. His work is heavily influenced by street art and urban culture, exploring patterns, shapes and themes of societal behavior, nature, faith, and personal events. His work is immediate and instinctual and often works on found objects as painting surfaces. His work engages the viewer in hopes of stimulating responses to similar issues and perhaps questions.
