Twice an official photographer at The White House for President Obama’s invitation to photograph the Ohio State Buckeyes 2015 and the Cleveland Cavaliers 2016 National Championships, Georgio Sabino III continues to consistently create magic, not only in Cleveland and Ohio, but also all over the United States. Among his many pursuits, he presently is working with the Uumbaji Art Gallery at Kent State University. He has served as an art juror for the former Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones and Congresswoman Marsha Fudge, and as a guest lecturer at Virginia Marti College of Art and Design, Ursuline College and Cuyahoga Community College. He served on the board of the Cleveland Entertainment Coalition and his work with numerous community organizations helped raise their visibility through his engagement and service as a chief visionary and prime strategist.
Searching for dramatic lines, and tracing vibrant colors depicting strong contrast enriches Georgio’s artwork. “A sense of completeness is achieved by paying attention to symmetry and balance,” Sabino shares. “I enjoy creating art that stimulates the imagination and challenges the intellect, propelling the viewer towards celestial heights where they can explore, discover and uncover their polyrhythmic identities through my work.”
An experienced artist, entrepreneur and educator in the professional arts and business community, he fosters real life connections with business pioneers to build and develop new talent and works of art. Georgio’s 20 years of business ownership has proven and provided leadership qualities, giving perspective to his expertise in the field of art. His graduate thesis on “Educational Genocide” advances the mental, physical and overall well being of customers, clients and students, balanced with cultural sensitivity and an empathetic understanding of history as it unfolds.
Sabino’s photographs and graphic designs convey polyrhythmic identities striving to be heard, but especially to be seen. By concentrating on the principles of design, a thorough understanding of the relationship between the visual arts, and the future of art, is conveyed to where you are compelled to feel the moment.
