LA-based painter Erin Garcia creates large-scale, site-specific murals and has partnered with the Ace Hotel, The Standard, Downtown LA, and Pepsi Culture Labs, to name a few. In an Instagram takeover exclusive to Uprise Art (@UpriseNYC), Erin gave us an inside glimpse into his artistic process, and his recurring interests: first determining a set of rules to guide each of his works or series, Erin creates compositions that explore repetition, color, and variation.

“My first large installation, created for the Ace Hotel Palm Springs, curated by Junk Magazine.”
“I just started layering semi transparent colors to create different hues. To figure out my favorite color combinations I drew every permutation (possible variation) of 5 colors pairing 2 then 3 colors. These are my current favorites from that process.”
“I use sets of rules to create each piece, what I think are the most important or defining rules usually end up as the title. 2-8-6 - 2 repetitions of 8 elements in 6 colors. Temporary installation The Standard Hollywood.”
