Geracho Arias was born in a town on the slopes of Chimborazo many years ago. His childhood and adolescence were marked by reading poems, stories and novels from his father’s library.
When he finished school, overnight, he decided that he wanted to be a painter because he had read about the painter Paul Gauguin.
He studied at the Faculty of Plastic Arts, and after finishing his art studies at the University, he left for a small fishing island located in the Pacific Ocean. After living 14 years on the small island, one day civilization and progress arrived, and in a short time it destroyed and devastated everything and everyone.
The artist now lives and works near Quito, the capital of Ecuador
