My artist name is genio, a name I adopted when I lived under the Spanish sun for a year. My fiancé adopted the name genia, as her artist name. Why? By giddiness ... or an explanation can be that we express ourselves through different kind of artistic creation, and, of course, we just love to feel inspiration, passion, spontaneity, impulsiveness ... using curiosity, joy and intuition ...
The unruly force of creativity has led me from area to area within art expression. Music forced me to nag my parents to give consent to a piccolo flute when I was 6 years, because I was too small in size to any larger instrument and, because they could not fulfil my wishes for a piano. My road of music continued from that point. Percussion and different music instruments ... until my hands and fingers started to explore the guitar.
I felt the connection between music and writing moved as a snake in many directions and, I got into writing my own songs.
I guess I was about 7 when I started to draw. I copied whatever I could to learn to draw objects in the physical world and ...I learned perspectives.
I stretched out for more and more to satisfy my creative hunger by drawing pictures. I moved on to painting oil paintings. Painting in old-master style made me stumble upon Da Vinci, Botticelli, Michelangelo etc. and, when I held exhibitions I played music on the vernissages, recorded or live. – Painting made me make songs about Pablo Picasso, Edvard Munch, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh and Salvador Dali. - You will find these videos on my website, by clicking on the Website link above.
I started to mix my songs and music in videos, using the music as the base with artwork and photos by me and genia as images. The walkabout of life leads me to investigate new expressions as an artist. It is a link to my videos on YouTube in mine and genia's Website, you will find the Website link above under my photo.
Thank you, genia, as the beautiful flower you are, to be an inspiration and, to walk by my side.
