gilda1Art is one of those practices that can be understand globally. Unlike language, literature, science, and math, which vary across the world, art is one of the few disciplines everyone can understand.


Gilda Garza, a Mexican painter, uses art to express the moments in her life that stood out to her with color and a masterful skill.


Garza says she can’t remember a time she wasn’t painting after she was born in Sinaloa, Mexico. Her talent and love for painting was passed on to her from her grandmother and mother.


She lived in one of the most dangerous locations in Mexico. She was surrounded my war and tragedy almost all of her life. She had family members who were kidnapped and went through a tragic breakup. All of these raw emotions culminated and present themselves in her paintings. In fact, the artist credits these emotions for her success, saying pain and suffering turn into inspiration and creativity. Each of her pieces reflect a moment in her life.


Some of her pieces include women surrounded by stars, a woman drinking coffee with the words “shine shine gilda3baby” written above her head, a woman on horseback, Playboy-inspired paintings, and raging bulls to name a few. Most of her paintings either showcase a love for her home country of Mexico, or they are images of women who are painted to look sexy and powerful. Because of this, Garza has been applauded as a female making strides in the art community for women everywhere.


The painter has been a guest at several events, including one at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nev.; another, the True Love exhibition in Miami; and the Red Lips exhibition. On her site, her fans can see albums of her work, including Te Amo Mexico, which showcases the painter’s pride in her home country; Girls and Art, which showcases the real-life photos that inspired some of her paintings; and more.


All of her work has sold out every show from her Miami event in 2016 to the most recent one in Las Vegas this year in 2017. Her events have been star studded as she has hosted gusts like Beverly Hills Housewife and reality star Lisa Vanderpump as well as an event with DJ Calvin Harris in partnership with Playboy Mexico.


Garza is also a hit on Instagram, where she has nearly 45,000 followers. Her fans love her and her work, and so do news organizations.


gilda4Medium, an online news organization, says that Gilda Garza is “blazing the way” for female painters, and blogger Norma Gouma said “Gilda Garza is a lad to watch.” All of the news organizations who have reported on Gilda’s work say that she is one of very few Mexican-born female painters to really make a mark in the United States.
