Fruit Fusion : The Fruitgasm Story

Tuesday, April 30, 2013
Geron South is not your typical University History Major student . This young creative individual is the Mastermind behind Fruitgasm which is his very own fruit carving business . His creations are just as intriguing as the name of his company , these Edible Art Creations are not only pleasing to the eye but is sure to tantalize your taste buds. Fruitgasm recently received recognition from the Japanese Ambassador ( Jamaica and Japan) at Japan Day , April 4 at the Faculty of Humanities, U.W.I., Mona.

H.P : How did you get affiliated with the Festival?
G.S: It was through Mr. Stephen Josephs , from there i went on the Website , did my research and the rest as they say was history.

H.P: Tell us about your signature piece/s ?
G.S: Shrine - A Shrine is like a place of worship , Holy ground so to speak . This piece is significant because i did it live in front of all the students from a bare melon into a Shrine.

H.P: What was your inspiration to create this piece?
G.S:  I really tried to focus on the Spiritual aspect of the Japanese Culture . They believe that everything in life is connected.
H.P: What was the re-action of the Japanese Ambassador ?
G.S:  He was in disbelief , he actually touched it to make sure it was an actual carving from a fruit and not just something to look at . He was really impressed and asked if I've ever been to Japan.

H.P: Do you think that your Major helps with your Art?
G.S : Yes , being a History major , I'm able to do in depth research on various cultures and bridge the gap of different worlds by creating exceptional pieces.

H.P: Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
G.S :  I want to be Global . I want to be in high demand , so high that people will have to book me 2 years in advance. I want to have high level clientele like people from the White House or Dubai.

H.P: What do you hope to do after school?
G.S: I hope to go full time into design , with the focus on my carvings.
