Geoffrey's Work is Superb
by: Anonymous

I was opportune to watch Geoffrey carve some of his amazing scenes including an Ibo, Palace in Nigeria. At that time he was working at San Francisco Art Institute. Many of the many art dealers appreciated his work only few marketed his work. It was frustrating. In Galleries at San Francisco, Camel and Santa Cruz art work of his contemporaries were fetching $10,000 and more for a piece of similar at when he was lucky if a piece of his work sold for $500.00 or less.
One day I volunteered to represent his work in promotion and sales and took some his work to Ventura, Santa Barbra and Beverly Hills, LA. My effort was worth it.

On a personal note I feel Geoffrey need a break. A part from global art outlets African governments need to recognize his creativity and shower him with award contracts.

I remember the very first experience of going to an art exhibition and I was like amazed or rather confused to see the paintings and sculptures, which actually looked so weird that even a two year old could make better than that. But when they were explained about the artifacts from the artist’s perspective, it was mind-blowing.

It is a pleasure to see your work; your sculptures are most unusual and fabulous.
