Victor Garcia is an artist based out of Austin, Texas. Garcia does not have an online presence; his artistic career is shrouded in mystery, just as his paintings are veiled with layers of symbolism. Garcia’s artistic style is a unique blend of contemporary and early industrial America. His forms are modeled in a way that reminds the viewer of Thomas Hart Benton‘s paintings of the working class from the early 1930s, yet Garcia’s use of color seems to be drawn from the southwest, similar to Diego Rivera. In Wishes in a Cotton Field, Garcia is combining both familiar and foreign imagery to create a dreamy, surreal landscape. 

Fun Fact: Diego Rivera was married to another famous artist – Frida Kahlo! During their lifetimes, Frida was often referred to as ‘Diego’s wife’ who also enjoyed ‘painting as a hobby’. Today, Frida is regarded as a much more famous, world-renowned artist, while Diego maintains his place as a famed muralist.
