New York based artist Victor-Raul Garcia incorporates color, movement and texture to represent moods, personalities and human emotions in his abstract fairy tale-like creations. With the use of acrylics, spray paints and pastels, these fantastical characters are brought to life by a subconscious energy that figuratively and literally explodes on to the surface. He may initially have physical control of his hands, but after that, the storytelling is taken over by his protagonists. And these theatrics are performed without a paintbrush. His non-traditional instruments include squeegees, palette knives, plastering tools and his own fingers. In our modern non-social, info-overloaded, work-driven communities, the human experience is losing its life force. He hopes the viewer can reconnect, via his paintings, with what it truly feels to be human. Welcome to his circus of beautiful creatures.

Victor-Raul was born in Lima, Peru and moved to the United States when he was 6 years old. His work has been shown at the Tamulka Gallery (Munich, Germany). Lanyon 36 Gallery (NYC), Boswell Mourot Fine Art Gallery (Little Rock, Arkansas), Katie Gingrass Gallery (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) and several Saks Fifth Avenue stores nationwide. His work has appeared in Hyland Magazine, Domino Magazine, New York Spaces Magazine, and many others. He divides his time between New York City and the Upper Delaware River Valley region of upstate New York.
