Artist Biography

Geneviève Gauckler

Geneviève Gauckler is a Paris-based artist and creator of a world of eccentric characters, blending them seamlessly into her everyday environment. She can already look back on an accomplished career in graphic design, illustration and art direction, having worked for French record label F Communications (Laurent Garnier, St. Germain), on music promo projects for Dmitri from Paris, Pierre Henry and Sparks with directors Kuntzel & Deygas.

In 2007, Geneviève worked on Beck’s The Information album and website, experimental videos with Pleix, and exhibitions at Colette in Paris, Tokyo and Someday Gallery in Melbourne. She spends any free time traveling around the world, giving lectures, exhibiting work and obsessively taking photos to fuel her ever-expanding photomontages.
