“My artistic inspiration comes from an admiration of early abstract painters enmeshed with a mixture of 1960’s modern pop art. Painters that inspired me include Pollock, De Kooning, Piet Mondrian, Warhol, and Rothko.”

Guy Fumagalli’s artistic style orbits around the simple element of family photography and moves on a journey toward the complexity of museum quality paintings. He attempts to make images that people have never seen before and won’t soon forget. Combining computer graphics, photography and handskills he develops a base idea of the image that he wished to paint. Acrylic, housepaint, oil pens and mixed media collide to create colorful, graphic expressions of everyday life. Colors become emotions and textured graphics interpret sounds. The once simple photos are transformed into vibrant expressive paintings that offer an intense interpretation of the everyday experience. As well as richly textured portraits he also creates intense abstracts.
