    Anthony Garcia Sr. Anthony Garcia Sr. was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, more specifically in the Globeville community. Beginning as an urban street artist (aka graffiti writer), Anthony has since grown into a multifaceted creative entrepreneur and community leader and is now most recognized for his public artwork, community outreach programming, and his leadership in championing emerging artists from Denver and abroad. His artistic style incorporates traditional Chicano motifs and celebrates the complex duality of living as a US Citizen who is also Chicano. His aesthetic pays homage to cultural, geographical, and historical contexts through the implementation of modern techniques and exploration of pop trends. While Anthony most commonly is referred to as a Contemporary Artist, he could additionally be considered a traditionalist, especially in terms of his interpretation of and relationship to the mainstream art world. Aside from being a successful contemporary artist, Anthony is also the co-founder of Birdseed Collective, a Denver-based nonprofit that aims to make a positive impact in local communities through programs and projects that emphasize creativity and healthy living. Birdseed Collective is also dedicated to educating and enabling the disadvantaged and the under-resourced and impacts its mission through food programs, afterschool programs, beautification projects, and a diverse array of inclusion efforts. His drive for community enrichment was influenced in part by his participation in theDenver Housing Authority’s Arts Street program and his longtime relationship with the MSU Center for Visual Arts. @birdseedanthony
