Guilloume is a master of “Bolismo,” an emotional style using simple forms, textures and movement to portray human feelings from the most complex to the simplest. His work reflects the depths and heights of earthly experience with all its joy, afflictions and fears.
Born in Colombia in 1957, Guilloume dedicated himself to art at an early age. He completed his formal studies at the prestigious Bellas Artes Medellin in 1982. He emigrated to the U.S. in 1985 and currently maintains a studio near Sante Fe, New Mexico, where he employs oils and ink in his paintings and creates sculptures in bronzes and steel.
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. He was singled out as “One to Watch” in Western Art & Architecture magazine.
“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.”
