My name is Robert S. Garza (The "S" stands for Secret) I'm a self-taught illustrator, painter and graphic designer born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I design logos and graphics for websites and local companies, and I design mural concepts that are rendered onto walls and public places.
I'm deeply inspired by the art of graphic novels, video games, animation, and the old masters. As such, you'll find traces of those influences in many of my works. My art is recognized most consistently for its blend of western comic book art and “shonen” and “seinen” anime styles, which also combines the use of color theory and minimalism to create a pop / graffiti blend.
In high school, I decided I was to spend my life making and being surrounded by art. And so, in 2014, I found my way to The Basement Gallery in Oak Cliff, where I began as an intern for its owner, Daniel Yanez (Artist DIY), eventually graduating to becoming its Director and Manager. I now act as the Site Manager for Yanez's new creative shared space, Elevate.
