San Francisco Bay Area artist Rupert Garcia

Rupert Garcia, a renowned San Francisco Bay Area Artist represented by Rena Bransten Gallery has made artwork featuring Frida Kahlo and also presented lectures on her work. In 2004 I had the pleasure of working with Rupert within the Hearts in San Francisco project of which I was Project Coordinator. He designed one of the giant Heart sculptures which was placed in public view during the city-wide exhibition.
If I had known before today that he was so fond of Frida Kahlo I would have spent more time talking with him about his studies on her life and work.
