The work of Santiago Garcia explores the wondrous, colorful and always intriguing world between figuration and abstraction. His Converse shoes serve as metaphors for family, relationships, and reminders of where they’ve been and where they are going. The numbers and sometimes words seen in Garcia’s paintings are based on Divine Proportion, which is the mathematical ratio that ultimately determines the patterns and proportions of the painting. The artist was born in Montevideo, Uruguay. He is a self-taught painter and studied under art scholarship at the University of Uruguay.
