This biography from the Archives of AskART:
"Rupert García, born in French Camp, California, is a Chicano artist who works in poster paint, oils and pastels.  He studied painting and received numerous student honors from Stockton Junior College and San Francisco State University (SFSU), where he was influenced by Photo Realism. 

One of the leading artists in the Chicano movement of the late 1960s and early ‘70s, García participated in the formation of several seminal West Coast civil rights movement-oriented workshops and collectives.  He helped establish the San Francisco Poster Workshop, which had been forced off the San Francisco State University campus during the Vietnam War, and concurrent civil rights protests, and Galería de la Raza.

After graduating from SFSU, García produced a signature work, a portrait of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara above the slogan “Right On!”  García has received numerous awards and honors, including an individual artist fellowship grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.  In 1992, he received four major awards: The President’s Scholar Award from San Jose State University, where he has taught in the School of Art and Design since 1988; the San Joaquin Delta College’s Distinguished Alumni Award; KGO-TV’s Profile of Excellence Award and the College Art Association’s Distinguished Award for Lifetime Achievement.  In 1995, he received the National Hispanic Academy of Media Arts and Sciences’ Lifetime Achievement Award in Art.
 
The bulk of García’s work is housed in the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.  Some early prints are housed at the UCSB Library’s California Ethnic and Multicultural Archives.  García wrote a biography of Frida Kahlo in 1983, Frida Kahlo: A Bibliography and Biographical Introduction.  It was the first major study of the Mexican painter."
