This year’s featured artist is Guilloume, a master of “Bolismo”, an emotional style using simple forms, textures, and movements to exhibit human feelings from the most complex to the simplest.
A native of Medellin, Colombia, Guilloume maintains his studio of fine art in Sandia Park, NM near Santa Fe. His minimalist style is expressed primarily in oil paintings and bronze sculptures, from tabletop-sized to massive. He also works in watercolors, oil pastel, pastel, pencil, and ink, as well as bronze reliefs and stone sculptures. He dedicated himself to art at an early age and completed formal studies at Bellas Artes Institute in Colombia in 1981.
Guilloume’s featured art piece for this year is a 6-foot-tall by 4-foot-wide oil-on-metal triptych entitled “Celebrating Abundance.” The stunning piece will be auctioned at the Art Dash Party set for the evening of Friday, April 8th as a prelude to the festival.
