Gilda Garza is a Mexican artist born in Sinaloa, Mexico. She started to paint as young as she can remember, a generational talent passed down to her from her grandmother.

Living in one of the most dangerous places in Mexico, Sinaloa, she was surrounded by war and kidnappings in her family. Her paintings show all of the raw emotions from these impactful events in her life.

She believes the best works of art happen when pain and suffering turn into inspiration and creativity.

Having gone through these experiences has only formed her into an even stronger woman who captivated what she was going through into beautiful pieces of art.

Every piece reflects a moment in the artist’s life.

Gilda’s Playboy painting was featured on the cover of Playboy Mexico’s February 2018 issue. She is the second painter to have art featured on the cover, behind Andy Warhol in January 1986. She is also the first artist to exhibit at the Omnia Nightclub in Las Vegas.
