How does one show the light in the midst of the darkness? How to bring hope in the chaos? How to express that there is more than gray areas and dark shadows? These are some of the questions answered by Geiler Corona’s unique contemporary painting style.
Geiler Corona was born in Cuba, where he first began to paint. He graduated the best undergraduate art school in his country, Academia Provincial de Artes Plasticas “Eduardo Abela,” and then completed in Bacherlor of Art Instruction through the Universidad de Ciencias Pedagogicas “Ruben Martinez Villena.” He has been involved in many individual and group exhibitions in Cuba and the United States. He currently works in Chicago as a professional artist.
In terms of style and intention, Corona attempts to represent the world around him in a two- dimensional form of artistic expression. He employs a figurative style, drawing influence from expressionism, abstract and pop art. He uses bright colors to express emotion and convey a synthesized, powerful message. His art is inspired to convey today’s reality with the light that is often missed in the midst of trouble.
