About the Artist

Vic Genaro

Born into a large Italian family in 1950, Vic Genaro was forever interested in the visual arts and music. His education did not extend past high school and he married very young. Suffering from severe depression and a failing marriage, he attempted suicide and was confined to an institution. During this trying time he turned to art as a solace and release. Recurring themes in his work reveal his love of music and people he came to know in the institution. A tortured but kind and gentle soul, he cares for all mankind.
