Pablo Iglesias Algora aka Geso or Pablo IA is an active creative mind involved in different art and design fields, born in 1977 in Madrid. As graphic designer and art director for GeeOhDee studio, as artist creating works for exhibitions in galleries and festivals (previously with his brother and partner), as dj and promoter of electronic music events and of course, as publisher and curator, since 1999, for his main project: Belio, an art publishing house and organization who runs exhibitions, concerts, festivals, conferences and workshops. Pablo IA actually lives and works in Berlin, where he founded The Mask Collective with Arnaud Iprex, apart of developing his career as visual creator Geso and freelancing for challenging creative projects.

Geso is the moniker he uses for his most personal work, specially focused in glitch and video art, live-video performances and urban interventions. His videos are a combination of glitches, geometric graphics, urban explorations, landscapes and images from nature, evoking a sort of lost paradise, a visual journey through symbols and images extracted from reality in order to re-connect the viewer with a kind of collective memory.

Geso’s visual installations, screenings and performances are usually but not always connected with the experimental music scene and the club culture. Some of his shows include Berlin Atonal Festival, Berlin, 2014, Krake Festival, Berlin, 2014 and 2013, Platoon Kunsthalle 2nd Anniversary, Berlin, 2014, The Mask Show, Berlin, 2014, Adobe Creative Cloud Launch Event Los Angeles, 2014, File Hipersonica, São Paulo, 2013, Crazy Language Showcase at LunchMeat, Prague, 2013, Color Invocation performance at Knock Knock Who Is There, Berlin, 2013, Applied Sound Arts, Leipzig, 2013, We Love 8Bit Art Show, Berlin, 2013, CutOut Fest, Queretaro, 2012 and Metro Sound – sound art festival, Madrid, 2011, among many others.
