Cesar Garcia was born in Havana, Cuba. His first encounter with the arts was through his uncle, a Cuban artist who learned his trade at the world-renowned San Alejandro Academy of Arts in Havana, Cuba. Garcia moved to the United States in 1969 with his family and has never forgotten those creative moments he experienced as a child in his uncle’s studio; images that live and are always a part of him. The approach upon the painting’s surface is conceived after a process of inspiration from within. Garcia analyzes his feelings and state of mind that preoccupies the artistic arrangement of forms, inner language and symbols. He describes his work as being the ultimate antithesis of classical form. Garcia creates with his soul and imagination and tells a story every single occasion. Garcia’s work can be found in various public collections including The National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York City, NY, Housatonic Museum of Art in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Favarola Museum, ST THOMAS University, Miami Florida, State of Florida Art Collection, Division of Cultural Affairs, Tallahassee, Florida, University of Miami (Casa Bacardi) Institute for Cuban and Cuban-America Studies, Miami, Florida, Art in Public Places Program of the Village of Wellington, Florida, City of Miami Art Collection, Miami, FL, University of Florida College of Fine Arts Gainesville Florida and many other institutions, foundations and recognized collections. Cesar Garcia is regarded as a Cuban American artist whose work is noteworthy of his generation.
