CHAC Norte Presents:
Artist David Ocelotl Garcia
I began my journey as an artist from the day I was given life. Through self-meditation and creative exploration I have developed my own technique and philosophy in painting and sculpture. I call it Abstract Imaginism. This technique allows me to explore many aspects of life including spirituality, science, history, tradition and nature. In my practice of this philosophy I have learned to honor my ancestors, friends, family and my community. I learned that it is important to respect the earth and strive to live equally, in harmony with all living things, to be one with the elements that create life. The purpose of my art is not only for visual beauty but also for visual education. I create it to enlighten the mind, body and soul of the viewer. Through these expressions I am able to explore my own past, rich in tradition, art, music, and dance. I express current events happening in my life, my community and around the world. My art is continuously evolving and moving in new directions paralleled by the energy of life that surrounds me.
