Gabriel Garza was born and raised in Los Angeles and currently resides in San Francisco. He produces signage that works to give functional encounters with language a sense of poetics. Pamphlets, construction signs, and homemade business cards display an amateur or practical design that he admires. He borrows from these aesthetics, embracing the limitations of commercial design and the poor quality of signage vernacular to make sculptures. He received his BA in Art from UCLA in 2017 and is joining the USC Roski MFA program this Fall.
