Dallas based artist, Abel Garcia, has been disrupting the art world for over ten years. His urban style marries graffiti inspired elements and traditional art concepts. He uses a unique layering technique on his large scale paintings, murals and live artwork with mediums such as acrylic paint, graffiti markers and spray paint. His over the top energy and love of color comes through in each piece. In fact, he has coined the phrase, "Why sleep when you can paint?" Clients such as Dallas Cowboys players Emmitt Smith and Jay Novacek, "Air Jordan" designer, Justin Taylor, The Dallas Mavericks, FC Dallas, Toyota Connect, Jack Daniels, professional boxer, Austin Trout, and many more have pieces of Abel's work. As a favorite of several interior designers, Abel's paintings can be found in luxury high rises from Dallas to Austin such as Plaza Saltio and 12 Cowboys Way. His murals can be viewed in Irving, Austin, and several neighborhoods in DFW and he has shown in Dallas, Austin, Atlanta, Las Cruces, and New York City. He was named Austin's "Visual Artist of the Year" in 2013. Abel gives back to his Dallas, Texas community, his hometown of Las Cruces, New Mexico and to several charity and non profit organizations such as The Warren Center, The Birthday Party Project, Operation Rock the Troops, The John Paul Taylor Center, Jardin de los Ninos, the Tortugas Pueblo Indians, the Dona Ana Arts Council and many more. Abel has recently expanded in to clothing and shoe design and is respected in the fashion industry. He loves to share his passion for art and life through his works!
