Join artist David Ocelotl Garcia for a discussion on Mural Art and why is matters. In this program we will be discussing mural painting, the history and significance of murals as well as how they impact the community, socially, politically, and culturally. We will be viewing and discussing some of the work created by local and international artists past and present, including David's own work. David will also discuss his philosophy about mural painting followed by Q&A.
David Ocelotl Garcia is a Colorado based artist and focuses on public art and museum collections. David discovered his natural ability and passion for fine art at the age of eleven. His early work consisted of life drawing and water based sculpture, which he created at the Art Students League of Denver. By the age of eighteen David was assisting professional mural artists and monumental bronze sculptors. Now his own work ranges from large-scale interior and exterior murals, painted directly on existing surfaces, panels, cloth and canvass to mosaic and sculpture. Through self meditation and creative exploration David has developed his own technique and philosophy on painting and sculpture called Abstract Imaginism. Abstract Imaginism is a style of art that combines the spontaneity and unpredictability of abstraction with the creativity and perception of his imagination. David is most influenced by the movement of atomic energy and it’s effect on all living things. It is through art that David hopes to manifest beauty, inspiration, color and energy.
