Good Shepherd (El Buen Pastor) Frame - Artist Lalo Garcia
About the Artist:
Born in La Cieneguita, a small rancho in the state of Michoacan, Mexico, and raised since the age of 13 in the San Fernando Valley, north of downtown Los Angeles, celebrated artist Lalo Garcia has spent 35 years immersed in the world of art.
Garcia’s love for his native culture combined with his faith and commitment to preserving the folklore of Mexico are reflected in his unique compositions. Garcia’s work has been permanently placed in sacred spaces throughout Los Angeles and the United States. Currently, Garcia is one of eleven commissioned artists selected by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to create artwork for the Los Angeles Cathedral of the Angels, a major historic landmark.
"As a conscious and responsible artist, it has been my calling to contribute to religious and cultural images as testimony to spiritual and multi-cultural diversity. At the same time, my work strives to develop a new expression for sacred spaces that represents ethnic, cultural, and religious diversity by way of a contemporary style that honors the traditions of our ancestors, as well as creating works of art that represent our own time and place. It is my hope, that through these works of art, there will be a renewed understanding of faith and culture." -Lalo Garcia
