Oscar Garcia is a Peruvian sculptor, descended from a long line of sculptors and foundry artisans. He grew up assisting master artists with public commissions and received both his BFA and MFA from the Fine Arts School of Lima. During his studies, Garcia became one of the master artists for public commissions, and was regularly engaged by the church, government, and military. In 2003, Garcia came to New York. His extensive knowledge of foundry work, wood and stone carving, and modeling with clay and wax (both figurative and abstract) has made Garcia’s Sculpting in Wax class a popular one at The Art Students League.
