ACEO Clown Portrait #114 "Gensi"

2 ½” x 3 ½” (64 x 89 mm), 2019

ACEO clown portrait #114 is inspired by a very unique white face clown "Gensi" aka Fulgenci Mestres Bertran from Spain. Gensi studied dramatic art at the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona and graduated in the Superior Conservatory of Music of the Liceu in interpretation of singing and violin. He has been clowning since 1996. In 2005 he started to work at famous Circus Roncalli with the role of the white clown who acts as a counterpart to Augustus, played by David Larible (He is on my painting list). According to Mestres, his task is not to "make people laugh", but to bring poetry to the track of the circus. I watched a YouTube clip of his act at Circus Roncalli, it's really good. See this link. Also you can follow his instagram at @gensiclown  to find out more about him.
