Genu Berlo's Profile
Hello, and Welcome to our shop OnceUponAPaper.Etsy.com
I am an artist and architect living between New York and Europe.
My art here is mostly gouache, watercolor and pencil. When I layout a tree, I am searching for a prototype and archetype, and for the most relevant and exciting to our human brains. Not an easy task, but so teasing to me. My trees give joy, positive energy, color to the walls, oxygen to your brain, and make your friends jealous. Trees, birds - two symbols of earth and flight, of rooted and freedom, of building and occupancy.
It started a few years ago, out of my professional architectural design research. As an architect you always need to sketch your plans with a pencil, and many times, your spaces start looking like bubbles following some structure. From there, it all deviated into these paintings. I guess I always loved trees…
