Geronimo aka Jumping Bull
The path that Geronimo has taken to reach this point is remarkable. Born to a Russian mother, his father was Sioux and Geronimo grew up on a North Dakota reservation absorbing his father’s tribal culture – until the modern world beckoned. Geronimo discovered himself, and an escape from difficult times, through painting. He found salvation through shape, line and colour; though he sees only in black and white, the legacy of an altercation that left him blind for three months. In Native American culture, they watch who you become before giving you a tribal name. Geronimo is ‘Jumping Bull’ – the one who leaps over obstacles.
