Trained as an architect, Pablo Garcia’s recent work has evolved from design-for-hire to internationally exhibited artworks, provocations and research studies. Born in 1975, Garcia was in college when the first internet browser launched. Composite training in traditional analog and then-nascent digital technologies inspired a research practice into the intersection and overlap of art and technology, obsolescence and the cutting edge, the real and the virtual. Garcia’s work ranges from scholarly contributions to art historical studies to contemporary artworks examining digital culture.
His expertise in the history and technique of drawing technologies has contributed to research for institutions such as The Art Institute of Chicago, The American Philosophical Society, The Polytechnic Museum (Moscow), and The Victoria & Albert Museum (London). Garcia’s work has been exhibited in galleries and festivals across North America, South America, and Europe. His work has also been featured in the most widely-read journals in the world, including Art in America, WIRED, FastCompany, Huffington Post, GQ, Mashable. Garcia’s Core77 Award winning NeoLucida (in collaboration with Golan Levin) was among the Top 100 highest grossing Kickstarter campaigns of all time. Previously, Garcia has taught at Carnegie Mellon University, Parsons School of Design, and The University of Michigan. He holds degrees in architecture from Cornell and Princeton Universities.
