Ok, I know it's so damn corny to quote somebody just to describe yourself, let alone Confucius, but this quote says all about my relationship with Widewalls, so forgive me for doing this: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Am I forgiven?

Sergio Garcia is an American contemporary artist, widely known for his unconventional sculptures. He once said that his art comes to life neither to be self-satisfactory nor to play a role in the arts. He simply plunges into the unknown. This artist uses the unconventional as a theme for his work while embracing painting as a platform to express himself – Garcia. At the same time, he explores the contemporary socio-political climate. Sergio’s sculptures depicting tricycles are created to manipulate viewers’ traditional expectations of his familiar, childhood toy, based on memory and nostalgia.

“I enjoy creating art that people can relate to and that stimulates the creative subconscious. Not only to create an emotional relationship between art and viewer, but to conjure up questions of how and why.” His delightfully distorted tricycles, figures, and other objects are presented at the exhibition titled Infinite Chapters, his solo show at White Walls Gallery at San Francisco in 2014.
