Erick “ROHO” Garcia is a Mexican-American artist born and raised in Joliet, IL. and is now one of Chicago’s most active artists based in one of the most cultural and artistic neighborhoods in the city — Pilsen. He is currently a master’s degree candidate at Governors State University, studying painting. Throughout his artistic growth, Garcia’s philosophy has been “Life is Art,” which is conceptualized a number of ways through his variety of artistic talents.
Garcia is currently the artist-in-residence at innovation center Blue|1647 located in Pilsen, an opportunity that has opened doors for his career in large-scale pieces, that include murals inside the centers based in Chicago and St. Louis.
When he is not engulfed in composing a new series of paintings he spends his time mixing music and becoming an all around DJ. As an artist of many passions, Garcia’s theatrical experiences have lead him into screenplay writing, a project focused on the process of being a true artist.
I am a positive force of energy. I have a responsibility to use this positive energy and pass it onto others through my art. I use vibrant colors as a reflection of what introduced me to the art world, graffiti. My message to the world is my life, indulging in life’s ambiance or focusing on good design composition, which is about making life better.
