    About the Artist
    Born and raised in Dallas, Sergio Garcia works primarily in print and sculpture, often incorporating text and icons of his adolescence within his pieces. Although influenced by these icons, he reinvents them using unconventional materials. This is particularly evident in his works incorporating tricycles, which Garcia transforms into fanciful vessels by morphing the frames into whimsical, Dr. Seuss -like riddles: a nostalgic nod to childhood whimsy that denies functionality and the object's original purpose.

    Garcia's artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally, receiving remarkable acclaim and recognition. Four of his pieces were selected for exhibition at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, including his celebrated U-shaped tricycle, which greeted visitors in the Nice Cote D'Azur Airport in France. Awards include receiving First Place at the "Celebrate Texas Art" exhibition in Houston, juried by John Zarobell, assistant curator of painting and sculpture of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Garcia has exhibited in various shows nationwide, including a solo-show at Frosch & Portman in New York, Kirk Hopper Fine Art in Dallas and White Walls Gallery in San Francisco. sergiotheg.com
