Thinkspace Family artist, Sergio Garcia is known for his life-size and sometimes larger than life sculptures of hands and vices. Garcia has created these idle hands portraying various scenes mostly seen outside of the white walls of the gallery space garnering attention from collectors and celebrities. PROHBTD recently interviewed Sergio Garcia to dive deeper into his process.
Currently, Sergio Garcia will be exhibiting several new pieces this weekend at The 4th Annual ‘POW! WOW! Exploring The New Contemporary Movement’. To view more of Sergio Garcia’s work visit the Thinkspace Gallery website and view PROHBTD’s full interview with the artist on their site.
At Art Basel in Miami, you exhibited a giant ashtray with a cannabis joint that you titled A Little Conversation Piece. What is the conversation people should be having about cannabis?
It’s really a conversation piece about everything in America. It’s weird how [cannabis] is legal here, not there, this county yes, maybe that county. It gets to this point where it’s like, is it taboo to smoke out in the open? Where are we on this? Where are we with anything? When I was younger, there was more middle ground. It’s gotten so extreme that common sense went out the window. Especially with Donald Trump, it’s like, what are we doing now?
Pow! Wow! Exploring The New Contemporary Art Movement is only a few days away and as of 2:00 pm our mainland feet will have touched the sweet island soil. We’re so excited to be returning back to paradise and working with the fantastic people behind Pow! Wow! Hawaii to curate our 4th exhibition at The Honolulu Museum of Art.

Thinkspace is honored to once again be exhibiting with the Honolulu Museum of Art School as part of this year’s POW! WOW! Hawai’i mural event.
For the fourth iteration of Thinkspace’s special exhibition ‘POW! WOW! Exploring the New Contemporary Art Movement‘ we have curated an exciting mix of established and up and coming artists from around the world.
This special exhibition will feature close to 100 local and international artists curated by Los Angeles-based gallery Thinkspace. In addition to the group show there will be a featured artist showcase from UK based artist Shok-1 and an installation from Oak Oak out of France. This massive group exhibition serves as a survey of the burgeoning New Contemporary Art Movement for art lovers on Oahu and the world over via social media, handpicked by one of the movement’s most prolific and respected galleries.
“With roots firmly planted in illustration, pop culture, comics, street art and graffiti, put quite simply the New Contemporary Art Movement is art for the people,” Thinkspace co-founder Andrew Hosner
