Paloma Garcia is a Dominican and French artist based in NYC. She studied drawing at the National Academy Museum & School, and received an oil painting certificate at the renowned Art Students League of New York.
Paloma’s diverse traditional body of work is mostly inspired by environmental protection and indigenous cultures. Her interest started while living in the Dominican Republic and Bolivia, where she grew up surrounded by majestic natural landscapes and indigenous people. Overtime, she witnessed how they were affected by human greed and that inspired her desire to protect.
For more than 7 years her range of skills has allowed her to collaborate with different individuals, companies and community groups. Her work got the attention of major institutions, among them, The National Museum of the American Indian and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. She also received the Cultural Exchange Ambassador award for her artistic presentation at the “No boundaries international youth art exhibition” at the United Nations.
Paloma’s work has been published in multiple international newspapers, websites, and books. These include, major Dominican national newspapers Diario Libre and Listín Diario. As well as Remezcla, the most influential media brand for latino millennials in NYC.
