Portrait of a neo abstract master: CARLY IVAN GARCIA!

Driftwood Salon presents CARLY IVAN GARCIA May 14th-June11th, 2011

Carly Ivan Garcia stands at 5’5” tall, and speaks softly, but somehow manages to fill the room. His intensity is startling. At once, you know you’re standing next to a legend in the making.

Carly grew up in Pennsylvania and now currently resides in Marin County, CA.  Throughout his life, especially during grade school, he endured great difficulties due to his dyslexia, yet he’s managed to rise above it all, and today seamlessly ties together a multi faceted career that includes curating art exhibits, showcasing his own fine works all over New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and now, a solo exhibit in San Francisco.

We are extremely pleased to present Carly's first solo exhibit in San Francisco, featuring all new works from this young, nonconformist genius whose paintings will excite you, demand your attention, and ask you to challenge some of your boundaries .

It is nearly impossible to describe Carly’s  work, the most common terms I’ve been reading are “neoism” or  “abstract expressionism”. The reason these terms fail is because his work is unlike anything I've seen in the art world today. A lot of artists we see now, are going for that rebellious art movement, and using art as a way to get their message out, yet Carly's works remain timeless, and classic, while fully acknowledging today, making for his own unique brand of hip, modern neo-realism!

Come check out this amazing neo-abstract painter at Driftwood Salon now through June 11th, 2011.
We're so stoked to be showing his last year's worth of works and expect to see this artist go very far in his career.
