Nelson Dedos Garcia
Born and raised in East Vancouver to Uruguayan parents where at a young age expressed extreme interest in illustration and performing art.
Eventually immersed himself in the Hip Hop scene during his adolescence and ended up becoming one of the pioneering elements of the culture in Canada. Upon winning himself a couple of Juno awards for outstanding album artwork, he has gained global recognition for being a versatile yet original illustrator within various genres. He works predominantly in the animation field as a designer, but finds the time to focus on a variety of installations and print works. What he produces are pieces that have delved in much thought and depth in regards to his subject matter.
Dedos has an interest for expressing his cultural roots through his work and also for invoking awareness to a higher conscious way of being wherever he finds it possible to incorporate. He continues to happily reside in Vancouver with his family of 3 children.
Infinite Potencial! is a reflection of how I observe the gift given to all humanity, as long as we don’t stifle ourselves and inhibit its truest nature which is allowing the soul to express itself through its vessel.
