Hello my name is Georgio Sabino III I am an Artist!
Within my artistic practice, I explore four distinct perspectives that shape my work: the adventurous spirit of GS3, the curious eyes of seventh-grade, the serious demeanor of businessmen, and the visionary thinker or futurists. These diverse facets have influenced my body of work, where color and shape intertwine to create a captivating experience on canvas or silk. To embrace the present and the advancements of technology, I incorporate augmented reality (AR) experiences, making my work interactive and engaging for contemporary society.
My ultimate goal is to encourage viewers to slow down and become an integral part of the artwork, allowing them to truly immerse themselves and appreciate the layers, perspectives, and celebration of nature. By providing an opportunity for the viewers to “smell the roses,” I hope to create a profound and contemplative experience. Nature, being a true wonder of the world, serves as the focal point of my art, reminding us of our interconnectedness with the delicate ecosystem we originate from.
Art, much like foreplay, demands active involvement, observation, and comprehension. It should not only be admired for its beauty but also for the intricate and delicate ecosystem it represents. By slowing down and attentively listening to nature, we can uncover the answers that lie right in front of us.
- Throughout the Artist Launchpad program, what surprised me the most about myself was my unwavering focus on my passion for creation and my ability to effectively document and share my artistic vision.
- I am currently experiencing success by participating in a major show in Cleveland, with another exhibition scheduled for 2024. However, I anticipate further success when I can showcase my work in Paris and New York City.
- As an artist, my primary values are rooted in five key principles that shape my artistic practice. I value creativity, seeking inspiration from artists like Basquiat, blending the unexplored to create novel techniques and ideas. Authenticity is essential to me, drawing influence from Romare Bearden, as it allows my work to reflect my multicultural background. I strive for a profound connection between my art and its audience, similar to Francisco Goya’s work. Lastly, I firmly believe in utilizing my art to make a positive impact on individuals and society, as demonstrated in my graduate thesis addressing important issues and inspiring change called Educational Genocide.
- Over the next 3-5 years, I have set three goals or intentions as an artist. Firstly, I aim to teach at a fashion school in Paris. Secondly, I intend to establish a presence in Paris with my art and wedding photography. Lastly, I aspire to organize an art and fashion show in the city, incorporating augmented reality (AR). Achieving these goals will require coordinating with the school, securing resources for teaching, investing in photography equipment, continually building my portfolio, marketing my services, obtaining funding for the show, and forming strategic partnerships. Exploring funding opportunities and collaborating with local artists and organizers will be crucial in attaining these objectives.
- My artistic practice possesses three unique elements: the fusion of nature, technology, painting, and photography; the observation of fashion trends and the expression of women’s desires; and the creation of mystery and excitement. These elements can be leveraged to communicate about my art in various ways. Through exhibitions and fashion shows, I can showcase the fusion of different mediums, emphasizing the connection between art and fashion. Engaging with the audience through feedback and social media platforms will allow me to involve them in the artistic process. By effectively communicating these unique elements, I can establish a strong brand and identity to attract a wider audience, positioning myself as an innovative artist at the intersection of art, technology, and fashion.
- I gained several significant takeaways from the program that I would like to share. Firstly, the program emphasized the immense value of sharing knowledge and experiences through interactions with speakers and fellow artists. This exchange of ideas and insights provided a rich learning experience and underscored the importance of networking.
Secondly, the program highlighted the significance of building a supportive community of artists and nonprofits. Collaborating and uplifting one another fosters inspiration, growth, and mutual success within the artistic community. I found great value in being able to share what I have learned with other artists, whether it was through class discussions or by showcasing my work at the UH Trudy Wiesenberger Gallery. These experiences allowed me to provide firsthand insight into the business side of being an artist and engage my audience effectively.
Lastly, this program has refocused and refined my knowledge and skills, enhancing my artistic practice. It has nurtured my creativity and reinforced the importance of having a supportive artistic community. By participating in this program, I have gained valuable tools to express myself effectively on paper and fostered a deeper understanding of the inherent value of collaboration and support in the arts.
