Guilloume is a master of “Bolismo,” a self-described, emotion filled style using modest forms, textures and shading to portray the vast range of human feelings-from the simple visages of routine daily interactions to those highly complex expressions reflecting the depths and heights of the earthly experience with all its joy, afflictions, hopes and fears. A Guilloume canvas is a dreamscape of memory and emotion where angles observe, as human forms move gracefully through the most mundane of tasks.

Born in Colombia in 1957, Guilloume dedicated himself to the arts at an early age, completing his formal studies at Medellin’s prestigious Bellas Artes Institute in 1982. He emigrated to the U.S. in 1985 and currently maintains a studio near Sante Fe, New Mexico (USA) where he uses oil, watercolor, oil-pastel, pastel, pencil and ink to create his paintings. An equally accomplished sculpture, Guilloume’s bronze and stone creations have been singled out by Sculpture Magazine to place him among the 10 most important sculptors of our day.

Guilloume’s work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in Los Angeles, Scottsdale, Sedona, Sante Fe, and Albuquerque, as well as in his native Colombia.

“When I look at a person, I see beyond the persona and the temporary attributes of age, beauty and style. It is there that I find the circles and the roundish forms that define the very essence of the human figure.”
