Anthony Garcia-Copian - welcome to the spirit world

“Years ago I was lucky to have learned about meditation, Spiritual Guides and Mysticism. During moments of Meditation I’ve been able to seep into the Spirit World and these are some of the abstract scenes that I paint as well as still life and Goddesses from different religions. My subjects exist in another plane. The African god Elegua in need of Zoloft. The insect Spirit World. The Fog of Lost Souls. The Goddess Kuan (The Goddess of mercy) and Aeracura (The blossoming Goddess.) Painting is my way of escaping into a soothing world and releasing.”

Anthony Garcia-Copian is a playwright and artist born in Cuba and currently living in Raleigh with his partner fashion designer Luke Andrew Baird. He was an original LGBT board member and organizes the Silent Auction every year for the LGBT Award Dinner. You may visit his website for more information: www.copianart.com.


An exhibition of Anthony Garcia-Copian’s art is displayed at the LGBT Center of Raleigh during the month of March 2014. Come to March’s First Friday Art Reception on Friday, March 7th from 6 to 9pm to meet and greet Anthony in person.
