Gena Milanesi is a self-taught painter whose work reflects a remastered reality through intense brushstrokes & movement. Her bold layers of paint function to achieve a distinct energy with oil, acrylic & other mixed mediums. As a dual-citizen of the US & UK, she constantly retracts to her roots as a source of inspiration. Her work presents a simultaneous exploration of the contemporary that reoccurs showing concepts of newness & practices of the past. Her recent works interpret various imagery using monochromatic hues to underscore juxtaposed content in a straightforward manner.

Milanesi's work adorns the walls of celebrities, professional athletes & notable executives. She has been part of group exhibitions in New York, London, Los Angeles, & Miami's Art Basel. Her versatile style has also attracted corporate entities such as Gibson Brands, Nike, ESPN, Casamigos Tequila, Veterinary Clinics of America, Bloomingdale's and she is the only licensed artist for the NBA & MLB with JH Design Group. Milanesi graduated from the University of Southern California & currently resides in Los Angeles.
