Galleria Dante Celebrates 30 Years of Yvan Genest Art

May 28, 2014

This is a unique opportunity to acquire a Yvan Genest painting while collaborating in the creation of a unique piece of anthology, a very special look at an amazing 30 year career of non-stop creation.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Galleria Dante is having a discount sale on art works by Yvan Genest, to celebrate his 30 years of non stop creation. The proceeds will help Yvan realize a long time dream, the publishing of a fabulous coffee table book, an illustrated anthology that will cover three decades of creation.

Yvan's career as a painter had unconventional beginnings. At first, his artistic temperament drove him to music. From the age of 17, he traveled throughout Europe as a singer/performer until his return to Montreal, many years later. But without the tradition of coffee shops and bars where one can sing, as in Paris, Yvan couldn't make a decent living. So he started selling watercolors, door-to-door and on the street. This survival activity was the beginning of an unforeseen but fertile ground for his unique imagination.

Since painting his first watercolors 30 years ago, Yvan has lived, painted, and exhibited in many cities and countries, while building his unique iconography. He has created thousands of original paintings, drawings, watercolors, pastels, etchings, engravings and digital works.

Why this special sale now?

This unique sale will help to finance a period of time where Yvan will concentrate on the preparation of an anthology of his 30 years of painting. Yvan will use KickStarter funding platform to pay for the publishing of the book but, prior to this, he needs to work on the writing, the research, the photography and the editing of his anthology, all of which requires lots of time and professional collaborations.

Every person who acquires an Yvan Genest's painting during this special and unique sale will receive, at the end of the project, a special edition of Yvan's anthology, including a signed original watercolor (6 po. X 8 po. min.) Each contributor's name will also be mentioned in this special book, alongside a full page reproduction of the acquired painting.

The book will cover three decades of Yvan Genest's art, including his European, American and Mexican periods. It will include many quotes (from Yvan and artists he admires) about art and the practice of art, in general and in particular, as well as a biography.

The anthology will be illustrated with hundred of photos of Yvan's works and the studios he's worked in over the years.

This is a unique opportunity to acquire a Yvan Genest painting while collaborating in the creation of a unique piece of anthology, a very special look at an amazing 30 year career of non-stop creation.

Open Mon-Fri from 10 am-5 pm, or by appointment during the Summer months, Galleria Dante is located at Basilio Badillo #269 in Puerto Vallarta's Romantic Zone. For more information, call (322) 222-2477, or send an email to info(at)galleriadante.com.
