Guillermo Forchino

The Art. The Laughs. The Life.

Watch

From the early 1980’s, Guillermo Forchino experiments with various materials to create his works of art. This research began in the city of his birth Rosario Argentina at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and then continued during three years of studies in art restoration and conservation at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France. During his studies he discovered and mastered many classic techniques and materials. After completing his studies in Paris, Guillermo returned to Argentina where he directed the Juan B. Castagnino atelier of art restoration for the Museum of Beaux-Arts in Rosario. It was during this period that Forchino began creating figures made from wrapped bands of cloth where the visible parts of the body (head and hands) were made from wax and paper maché colored with natural pigments.   From the end of the 1980’s, Forchino chose polyresins to create figurines and scenes that often resemble the world of comic strip and cartoon characters. These are typically unusual and humorous subjects such as a family leaving on vacation in an overloaded car with flat tires, or a tired old American pick-up truck from the 1950’s with equally tired passengers. Mr. Forchino has also chosen to create other modes of transportation such as boats, planes and motorcycles and has even used a floating bathtub in his works. His creations are always full of humor and finesse and are created with a unique character. Guillermo has regular expositions in France, in Argentina and in the Netherlands. Mr. Forchino lives and works in Paris, his workshop is only a few steps away from the world famous Père Lachaise cemetery. Under Guillermo's supervision he has had many of his works recreated for a small number of his global collectors.   Working directly with artisians and mold makers to reproduce his originals works of art into limited editions. Each sculpture is masterfully reproduced and halmarked with the artist signature logo and limited edition number.  Each prized limited edition work of art will be shipped gift wrapped in the "Forchino Times" and include a biography of the artist and certificate of authenticity.
