Artistic rendering of Anthony Garcia and his proposed mural art


Anthony Garcia, Sr.
Location: Hydro Alley
Installation: Jan. 2023

Anthony will host community art/environmental workshops at RedLine and Birdseed Collective as part of this piece, as well as provide stipends to adult and youth volunteers for painting the project. Whirlpool will fully wrap the alleyway with a loud, vibrant pattern that welcomes visitors and creates a portal-like experience when walking through it. 

About the artist

Anthony Garcia, Sr. was born and raised in Denver in the Globeville community. Starting off as a graffiti writer, his knowledge of the Denver art scene and his go-getter attitude molded him into a force to be reckoned with early on. He is currently programming with at-risk youth and trying to bring more fine art to the streets of Denver. He is also the co-founder of Birdseed Collective (a DIY group of artists working together to create a more accessible platform for up and coming talents to express themselves). His artistic training was molded by Denver “Art Street” program and the Center for Visual Arts.
