René Garcia, Jr. returns to Project One with a new collection of sensational glitter works that celebrate the iconography of awesomeness. "Badass" is an unmistakable state of being defined by attitude, audacity, and authenticity. It is a title hard- earned, reserved for the strong. Don't be fooled by poseurs.

By employing familiar, craft based techniques, René invites an immediate connection to his work through shared experience. That everyone, at some point in their lives, has made something fun with a little Elmer’s glue and glitter is the foundation upon which he expands his art. Employing a heavy dose of optimism and a penchant for the unquestionably awesome, René exploits proven gimmicks in an earnest attempt to dazzle. In a culture where reproduction is easy and accessible, he makes meticulously handcrafted work that is deliberately unique by design. His work demands interface and panders to the viewer. You might want to touch it. You may even want to lick it.

René Garcia, Jr. is a full-time artist, father, idea man and all around bon vivant. As his work continues to gain popularity throughout the universe, San Francisco remains his home and primary source of inspiration. He has been a resident artist with Project One since its inception.
