I am a traditional artist, who grew up in a multicultural and artistic family. My father was very good at architectural drawing and my mother showed me the way through music encouraging me to play musical instruments. I started my artistic learning process by attending art classes specialized in watercolor, a mean that I use ever since. Together with watercolor painting, I taught myself in drawing with Chinese ink and learning pointillism, a technique I love pretty much. Finally, I started some years ago in learning to paint with acrylics, a mean that suited perfectly to me and fulfilled the need in expressing myself through realism, hyperrealism and surrealism. I have different projects ongoing with the aim of starting my first solo exhibition and developing my own artistic style and trademark. I also do run an art site on Facebook with over 8500 followers, called “Guiarte”, where I promote all kinds of artists. I am also working on different commissions, one of which is an art cover of a music LP. As I am very active in literature too, writing a Novell, I use this field and contacts to design also book covers and illustrating them. ~ Guido de Oliveira
