Guilloume

 
 

“ I like simplicity, round shapes and circles………………” Guilloume

Guilloume is a master of “Bolismo” an emotional style using simple forms, textures, and movements to exhibit human feelings from the most complex to the simplest. Guilloume’s canvas is a unique expression of earthly humanism with its joys, afflictions, and fears. Born in Colombia in 1957, he dedicated himself to art at an early age and completed formal studies at Bellas Artes Institute in 1981. Guilloume works in oils, watercolors, oil-pastel, pastel, pencil, and ink as well as creates sculptures in bronze and stone. Guilloume maintains his studio in New Mexico.
