From the early 1980’s, Guillermo Forchino (1952) experiments with various materials to create works of art in volume. This research began at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Rosario, Argentina and then continued with three years of studies in art restoration and conservation at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France.
At the end of the 1980’s, Forchino chose poly resins to create figures and scenes that resemble the world of comic strip and cartoon characters. They are typically unusual and humorous subjects, always handled with humor and finesse and given a soul.
Guillermo Forchino lives and works in Paris in his workshop two steps away from the Père Lachaise cemetery.
The Comic Art of Guillermo Forchino is now available for a larger group of art lovers in the form of limited edition, numbered series.
