Captivating in all ways, Calvin Arsenia transcends art and humanity. Visually, lyrically, and sonically, Calvin commands attention at all times. Although many will initially be struck by his considerable physical presence, once his tongue has been unleashed and his first note has been plucked, strummed, or struck, one will know that this is a supremely gifted individual. Equally adept at guitar, banjo, and piano, Calvin’s instrument of choice is the harp.
Explaining his desire to express himself through something more than ordinary, Calvin says he was drawn to the harp. Unable to secure formal training due to finances and availability of proficient teachers, he displayed his determination by watching countless hours of YouTube videos, followed by endless hours of self-imposed practice. Any spare moment in the day was spent studying, practicing, reflecting, and developing himself on the instrument. One can almost imagine him riding his bike to work with his harp strapped on his back. Calvin’s work ethic is not to go unnoticed as he matches his efforts to improve himself with his natural artistic abilities.
