About the Artist

Caroline is a Belgian born multi-media artist and designer who has been residing in downtown Los Angeles since 2011. Her work is consistently inspired by colorful urban landscapes, patterns, op-art, and animal imagery. Several dimensions of my childhood and early adult-hood are reoccurring themes that compose the infusion amongst the cityscapes, architecture, design, and animal conformations.

Caroline grew up in Orlando, Florida and lived in a few different cities through out the state and Miami for nine years before moving out to Los Angeles. Besides taking a few art classes in high school and college electives, she is a self-taught artist and received a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration majoring in Marketing and Real Estate from Florida Atlantic University. After a twelve year career in marketing for architecture and real estate firms, she ventured off to start her own company in 2017, Caroline Geys Design Studio.

Since living in Los Angeles, she has created several public works of permanent and temporary art installations, and exhibited in galleries. Caroline was selected to participate in the LA Design Festival and collaborate with Dunn-Edwards Paints to create an interactive and imaginative three-dimensional space bringing their archetypes and the stories of their 2020 colors to life. The festival took place at the ROW DTLA from June 20-23rd. She also had two of her Pershing Square pieces on view in the ‘conversation’ space where the design talks occurred throughout the duration.

Caroline has been living one block from Pershing Square Park for the last eight years and in February, the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks team installed her five, 9’ x 9’ pieces installed in the ‘Art Squared’ portion of the park which are on view till June, 2019. A new series of paintings were exhibited in her first international show, “Traces of Geometry” at AXRT Contemporary in Avellino, Italy with another Los Angeles artist from May till mid-June. The series will stay in Italy for six months, travel to two art fairs, and return back to the gallery for a group show with resident artists later this year.

In December 2018, she completed five 16’ x 18’ wall graphics that were installed also at the ROW DTLA, Building 1’s lobby for permanent installation in association with Preen Inc. Interior Design firm. ROW DTLA is a thirty-acre site of historic buildings and 1.3M SF of creative office space, six buildings, restaurants, and retail stores. The pieces combine digital art and Joshua Tree photography Caroline took with a Phase One 100MP camera. *This project won Hospitality Design Magazine finalists in the Select-Service Public Space category.
Last spring, along with Standard Vision, a Los Angeles digital media company, Caroline was selected as one of the artists to display three of her Vortex digital art pieces on the facade of the Marriott's four-story digital screen, located across from the Staples Center. The images rotated each hour along with the other selected artists during May 14 – 27th.

From August to November of 2017, she was part of a group exhibition at Cappellini, Italian furniture showroom in West Hollywood with a new series of four recycled hosiery pieces on canvas. Caroline has incorporated this material through various works since 2009.

In 2017, Caroline worked with the City of Los Angeles and ‘Night on Broadway’, the downtown music and arts festival titled, ‘LASIM’ (Los Angeles Skyline Interactive Mural). She was also one of seven finalists for ‘21 Broadway Boxes’, a downtown utility box design project as part of the ‘Bringing Back Broadway’ initiative that would be displayed on the iconic Broadway theater street.

Caroline hand painted two utility boxes also in collaboration with the City of Los Angeles and Beautify Earth for ‘Beautify Hi-Fi’ Project in 2015. The project included a selection of 19 Los Angeles-based artists to paint directly on utility boxes in Historic Filipinotown. Caroline was one of the only artists to be awarded with two boxes as her canvas. In addition with Beautify Earth she has completed two murals in Santa Monica in 2015; Infuse Wellness, a medical spa and Elite Appliances, a high-end appliance store.

Caroline completed a collaboration with Reebok in 2016 for their new fit-hub space to design an indoor mural in West Hollywood. Also that year, she created an interactive exhibition and installation, ‘The Vortex Project’ based on the insertion of color into a stylized norm-core world. The tunnel installation, a 12’ by 9’ sculpture made of recycled hosiery braids, resistance tubing and hardware that attendees could walk through.

She has also exhibited in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, and Raleigh, North Carolina.
