Artist Bio

Genesis Chapman, hailing from Bent Mountain, Virginia, has emerged as a versatile artist whose portfolio spans woodworking and painting. Growing up surrounded by the craftsmanship in his father Peter Chapman's wood shop, Genesis acquired a profound appreciation for woodworking techniques.

His father, a distinguished woodworker who once worked with George Nakashima, imparted invaluable skills that inspired Genesis to carry on the family tradition of crafting unique wooden animal puzzles.

Building on his father's foundation, Genesis has expanded the family puzzles business, introducing his own designs that push the boundaries of complexity.

In addition to his woodworking pursuits, Genesis earned his BFA at the Art Institute of Kansas City in 2001, and a MFA from VCU in Painting and Printmaking in 2010.

Genesis has earned him recognition as one of the Top 100 emerging Southern Artists by Oxford American Magazine in 2012. He has shown in Second City Gallery in Charlottesville, 1708 Gallery in Richmond, the Taubman Museum of Fine Art in Roanoke, and The Eleanor D. Wilson Museum at Hollins University.

Inspired by the natural beauty of Bent Mountain and the vibrant arts scene in Richmond, Genesis splits his time between his cabin on Bent Mountain and his house in Richmond, where he lives with his wife, daughter and two absolutely crazy dogs.
