Demonstrating Artist: Charlo Garcia Walterbach

About the Artist

Hailing from Monterrey, Mexico, designer and visual artist Charlo emigrated to the US in 2013 and moved to Denver in 2019. Taking inspiration from Keith Haring, Remedios Varo, and MC Escher, Charlo’s style combines symbols, letters, and abstract linear movement to create one-dimensional worlds full of hidden themes and messages. Charlo enjoys drawing and hiding these symbols, words, and phrases. People enjoy discovering them when they engage with his work, which, in turn, makes Charlo feel good and inspired to create more pieces. That’s why his process is called the "joycycle."
