Geiry

  • France
  • Painter
Art is like traveling without leaving home. Therefore it seems essential to me to transmit this possibility through my works.
Originally from Normandy, Geiry grew up in a family of craftsmen, given that her father and grandfather are both cabinetmakers. Also, as she said herself, it is completely natural that she would take her choice of career towards a manual subject. Becoming a professional hairstylist in 1995, she has since worked for a number of clients, but always endeavoured to spare some time for her passion for painting. In addition, Geiry likes to collaborate with photographers in the field of hairstyling, but also those of body painting, make-up and tattooing. Living in the south of France in the city of Toulouse for more than 10 years, Geiry works on the creation of figurative paintings. A self-taught painter, she learned drawing techniques over the course of her professional training, and has not stopped perfecting her style since then.
With the help of her fingers, knives and brushes, the artist shapes the pictorial subject matter using juxtapositions, which aim to give depth to the work and to increase the dynamism. Boldly contemporary, colourful and expressive, her portraits are the product of various themes, which range from the beauty of old age to urban youth through allegorical representations of death or vanity. Inspired by the painters whom she admires for their strong personalities and incomparable styles, such as Gustav Klmit (1862-1918), Frida Kahlo (1907- 1954), Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) or Margaret Keane (born in 1927), GEIRY carves out her own path with passion and simplicity.
