Walfrido Garcia, known in the art world as simply “Walfrido” was born on November 23,1966 in the Philippines. His Father Edgardo F. Garcia, a well know artist and instructor, came to the United States in 1969 during turbulent times in the Philippines. The family reunited in Los Angeles in 1972. In 1973 they moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where Edgardo taught the fine art of oil painting to his protege Walfrido.

At the age of 14 Walfrido apprenticed with his father. His duties included being a teacher's assistant at their home studio.
