Geiler Corona

Artist bio

Biography 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 in 1987. He started to mix colors with crayons at the age of five. When he was ten, he drew the first drawing that caught everyone’s attention at home. His mother realized his passion for applying color and for representing the world around him in a two-dimensional form of artistic expression. She began to encourage him to continue to do so. In 2002, he was accepted to attend to one of the best art academies in the Island, Academia Provincial de Artes Plasticas “Eduardo Abela” where he graduated in 2006 as a professional artist specialized in painting. In 2010 he continued to expand his knowledge of arts in the Universidad de Ciencias Pedagogicas “Ruben Martinez Villena,” where he attained his Bachelor of Art Instruction in 2010. Since 1999 Geiler’s artwork was part of multiple collective exhibitions as well as personal shows starting on 2005. In the beginning of his career as an artist, Geiler dabbled all painting styles to realize he wanted to be unique. While he was searching for the best way to express himself, he started using bright colors to express emotions and convey a synthesized, powerful message. In 2015 his life and professional career had a huge turnaround, and his message was then inspired to convey today’s reality with the light that is often missed in the midst of trouble. His paintings bring light, hope, peace, and endless hours visual enjoyment to the viewer. Geiler Corona lives with his wife, his daughter and dog in the Chicago area and paints from home in the quietness of his studio.





Artist Statement

Since 2015 all my painting have been inspired by the Bible. I paint for God for from Him comes every talent and skill, and I use them for His Glory. I pray to God and He gives me the scripture reading, then the images comes to my mind and the end result is always unexpected because I let God guide me through the process. I like to use different tools, things that call my attention at the store and that I feel will yield to interesting results. My paintings are my way of preaching the Word of God and bring people to Christ.

How it fits into contest

The greatest battle ever fought. The spiritual battle rages every day in everyone's life. It is a fight between the sinful nature and God's nature, between good and evil. The painting shows an individual praying. The lines in red show that he has struggled, perhaps he has been wounded in some way. There is darkness in the background and he is holding onto the Word of God and the testimony of Christ, which gives him victory over the enemy. His face is enlightened because he is coming into the presence of God with his prayer and God pours out all his blessings on the individual's forehead. You can see that he has emerged from something bad and is going to something great. God has called us to preach his Word and in "Christ we are more than conquerors" Romans 8:37 We are called to persevere in Jesus, until the great day of redemption, when we will be united with our Heavenly Father and our loves ones forever.


I want to thank God for the inspiration and the privilege to preach His Word through my paintings. I also want to thank my wife Lily for all her support and love.
