Emerging from a traditional painting background, Geoffrey Gersten is a whimsical painter driven by classical beauty. Dropping out of an early career as a CAD designer, he fell into the pursuit of a deep, intrinsic calling to create something meaningful. Self-taught since 2010, he settled into oil painting and wholeheartedly, the study of art history. These perennial inspirations, coupled with a modernized palette, have shaped a unique approach to forming a link between subculture art styles and the finer world of classical art history and exceptional technique. "Painting is like a good storybook, a challenging, tactile, tangible, textured, fun, endless realization of imagination. With all of the seriousness and beauty of classical technique and glorious brushstrokes topped off with a whimsical hope that somewhere, all the beauty of people, nature, and animals, and our surroundings exist in a colorful, light-hearted world full of surprises."
Gem-like glazed surfaces belie the artist's intent to convey the nuanced complexities of the human soul in context to the modern world around us and the beauty of our natural earth, which we are privileged to enjoy. Enriched by the delicacy of flora and fauna, a tableau of characters, pop-culture motifs alongside wide-eyed animals and robots inhabit their tranquil universe. Geoffrey's paintings relay a sense of mystery while allowing a reflective viewer to identify their own heart, invoking fleeting emotions that we experience universally
