Rupert Garcia


"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.
