Santiago Garcia Biography

The work of Santiago Garcia explores the wondrous, colorful and always intriguing world between figuration and abstraction. Through contextualization of reality, the Uruguayan artist’s work raises absurd situations within a framework of the everyday world and leaves the content on its own to the free interpretation of the observer.

 

As self-taught painter, Garcia produced an immense body of work in his early years. During the mid-1990s he studied under master engraver Eduardo Fornasari, master painter Clever Lara and acclaimed ceramicist Susana Pizzurno. In 1998, Garcia obtained a grant from the Museum of American art of Maldonado for drawing and painting studies with the master painter Miguel Angel Battegazzore. He also worked as an assistant to the Argentinean painter Rogelio Polesello for an exhibit as this museum.
