Art Brokerage: Walfrido Garcia Filipino Artist: B. 1966. Walfrido Garcia, son of artist Edgardo Garcia, learned at an early age to use his God-given talent to evoke beautiful emotions by translating visions from his imagination to a permanent form. Through years of apprenticeship and formal art education, he quickly learned how to manipulate light, form, color and detail. He has been teaching art since the age of seventeen, and he is a widely sought after instructor/demonstrator in the Bay Area. In his mid-twenties, the future looks very promising for this talented man. Having spent most his life near the ocean, he combines his two most cherished activities: surfing and painting. Through his first-hand knowledge of the sea, he is able to capture its realism while his style emphasizes its romance, mystery and grandeur.
