"I am a Fashion Designer for the spirit, I simply dress the soul"

"I am a Fashion Designer for the spirit, I simply dress the soul," is what Yvan Genest believes about the images he represents throughout his artwork. Born in Montreal, Canada, he has spent more than 30 years devoted to painting. In his teens,  he worked as a singer in variety of venues throughout Paris, just before diving into the world of colors. When he returned to his native country, Genest decided to work in the painting world and literally knocked on every door to create opportunities for himself. In this way he started to walk the path that led him to his contemporary style. Today, his paintings reflect his view of the image of the soul, where the color blue is a constant, and for him this is the color of the infinite, from the inexplicably beautiful to the deeply meaningful. Genest is represented locally by Galleria Dante. Learn more about this and other galleries in Puerto Vallarta by visiting our Gallery Section.
