We recently had a conversation with a very talented, passionate and highly skilled painter Gilda Garza. Sharing it with our readers here.
Pro Media Mag : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers.
Gilda Garza : My name is Gilda Garza and I am a Mexican painter.
Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to become an artist?
Gilda Garza : My Mother, she is also a painter. I grew up surrounded by art my whole life and that is how I discovered my one true passion in life. I absolutely love what I do and I get to express how I’m feeling on a canvas. There is not one day that goes by that I don’t paint.
Pro Media Mag : How much your life and surroundings has influenced your work?
Gilda Garza : Every painting that I have created is a special moment in my life and it also has a story and background to it. One day I will tell these stories depending on how I’m feeling, or as the situations happen I will just put them on my canvas. When My emotions are most raw is when I create the most beautiful pieces.
Pro Media Mag : What kind of paintings your normally paint ?
Gilda Garza : I paint with acrylic and oleos and I love color that make you feel alive and that are daring. I believe that a wall with a piece of art, is a wall filled with life.
Pro Media Mag : What kind of response your art is getting for art lovers?
Gilda Garza : I have received a lot of support from people and also great comments about my art. They enjoy what I do and that motivates me to keep painting for them. I am surrounded by amazing people and a great team.
Pro Media Mag : Have you set some goals to achieve?
Gilda Garza : Art Basel Miami was one of my goals and it was an amazing event with my favorite DJ spinning for all my guests, Duke Dumont. Another one was my exhibition in Las Vegas that I had at the Caesars, that one was also an unforgettable moment for me. My paintings were hanging all over the hotel and also the screens, mariachis singing my favorite song El Sinaloense!!! It was truly and unforgettable moment and experience for me.
Pro Media Mag : Where you normally exhibit your paintings?
Gilda Garza : I normally exhibit them in hotels and also in art galleries.
Pro Media Mag : Anything else you would like to share with our readers ?
Gilda Garza : I wanted to share with them that I truly love what I do. When you truly have a passion for something, you feel so wonderful while doing it! I love using bright and happy colors so I can transmit that wherever my paintings go. I also love helping those in need and I truly believe that if we all help out even just a little we could make this world a better place. I will continue to donate sales of my art to institutions that are important to me, just like I just did in Tijuana at the migrant refugee home. There is so much we can do, we cannot just sit and watch or wait for someone else to help out. It’s time to wake up and and try to better the world we live in.
