ARTIST INFORMATIONBIO  

Eva Carole García

Eva Carole García was born in 1949 in Sacramento, California to a family of eight children. Attending junior college and experiencing the context of the 1960’s, her creative passion was initially expressed through her lifelong love of music and dancing. Eva’s visual arts interests were always present through her figurative lead pencil drawings on type-writer sized sheets of paper. In 1979, Eva was introduced to the charcoal medium and larger-scale drawing by her sister, Lorraine Garcia-Nakata. Eva’s skillful drawings and mixed media works began to be exhibited widely and marveled many who were able to see them. Moving to San Francisco with her sister Lorraine in 1985, Eva went on to establish herself as one of the Mission District’s important muralists. Employed at the Galería de la Raza, her presence and artistry at the infamous sidewalk billboard mural became legendary. Her life ending abruptly in May of 1991 was not only a loss to her family and our community, but to what surely would have been a remarkable artistic life.
