Gena Shvartsman Cristiani is a fifth generation circus artist from Russia, the child of two accomplished performers. She began training at the age of eight in the art of juggling. In the span of a few short years, her phenomenal talent brought her to United States. By the age of thirteen, she was a star attraction for Ringling Bros, Barnum & Bailey Circus.

Her skills and experience growing, Gena traveled the world performing in lavish variety and circus shows, as well as competing in elite circus competitions. She was awarded a silver medal at the prestigious International Circus Festival of Monte Carlo, and a silver medal at the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain in Paris, France. In addition, she took the coveted gold medal at the World Juggling Federation Championships in Las Vegas. 

As is common with so many gifted people, Gena’s interest in art stretched into many other disciplines and medias. Sketching, drawing and painting became her second love. After years of drawing out designs for costumes and sketching artists she admired, she began making commissioned pieces of art and design. Drawing inspiration from the colorful world of circus and variété, her costumes, drawings, and paintings exude an effervescent and fantasy quality that captures the magic of her subjects, many of whom are talented artists in their own right. Now in full command of her artistic vision, Gena creates drawings, paintings, and costumes for customers literally around the globe. She has designed and created costume wardrobes for touring stage shows, and her paintings have been sold to galleries and private collectors. In the last year, she has even co-founded a nationally recognized custom cake company with her mother-in-law, called Center Ring Cakes.

Hi Gena! I am just now getting dressed for a show and I wanted to write and say thank you again for my beautiful costume!! It fits me perfectly and I feel so beautiful and confident wearing it. All the time and care you put into this piece really shows. You made exactly what I wanted and I love the beautiful design elements you suggested that I never would have thought of myself. It was a pleasure working with you from start to finish. I can’t wait to start working with you on my next costume!!

I would just like to take a moment and thank Gena Shvartsman Cristiani for my incredible costume. I have performed across the globe as a swinging trapeze artist and costumes for my act are always a source of stress. It has always been a struggle between wanting to be stunning, and a necessity for functionality. Yet, Gena somehow seamlessly found an incredible medium, and I have never felt more safe, comfortable, or beautiful in the air.  Gena has an incredibly talent to listen and understand what an artist really wants and needs. She is not only beautiful inside and out, but she has the ability to create costumes that allow other people to feel beautiful. And that is a true gift.

Gena’s costumes are amazing!!! Durable,comfortable, and they look fantastic!!! The best part is, if you don’t really know what you want, she will design something that fits your needs! She also knows what is functional for the artist so you will never have to worry about your costume when you are performing!!!
