Gui Calil
  • Gui Calil, the Artist

    Born on April 20, 1974 in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil, Gui Calil holds a degree in Communication specializing in Marketing and Advertising.

    is background intertwines with that of design on paper as his family business has been providing graphic services, including unique customized printed material, since 1966.

    Playing around with reams of paper since childhood, he discovered the pleasure of turning his thoughts into colors and printed shapes. His passion for art and design, forever burning in his restless soul, found the ideal outlet in works of acrylic on canvas.

    With no limitations of space or tools, his work is a transcription in colors of his torments and most visceral yearnings, defined by the artist as the "aesthetics of the soul.

  • The Power of Colors

    Dealing with colors is a challenge within the fine arts. The various shades allow each artist infinite dialogue possibilities, leaving open countless visual games of the most diverse natures. It is true that each color provides great power on their own, but it is also possible to combine them in diverse impacting ways.

    Gui Calil draws on colors in imaginative ways. A common feature of his works in acrylic on canvas is their aesthetics and poetry, established on exploring the freedom provided by space and his work tools.

    Each piece of work has a story to tell, each having a specific relationship with reality. It is as if each new canvas talks to the viewer in a unique manner, but with a greater purpose of encouraging emotions to surface.

  • The Power of Colors

    The first impression is vital. It is impossible not to react to what Gui Calil creates. His proposal to instigate a dialogue between what he creates and what the viewer observes is successful, and this first glance is key to generating empathy between the creator, the conceived object and the audience.

    Inevitably, we find ourselves thinking about how the artist uses his available resources to obtain the desired effect. It is worthwhile to think about the way the pieces are created, as it always provides a surprising effect while keeping elements common to all of the pieces.

    The different paintings function as a great family. While there is a strong bond between them, there are also great differences in atmosphere and personality. Each painting requires an unique observation, however, this does not prevent an overview. A common trait of quality artwork, which is that they are capable of generating thought units that revolve around some concept or idea.

  • The Power of Colors

    The work of Gui Calil is impressive as a whole as it features a wide repertoire of colors, moving over a range that is able to provide a unique insight each time they are pondered. This means that his pieces are not tainted with sameness, but expand the creative spectrum at each glance. Therefore, his art maintains its freshness and indicates even more daring journeys for the near future.

    Oscar D'Ambrosio holds a Ph.D in Culture, History, Arts and Education from Mackenzie University and has a Master of Arts degree from the Institute of Arts of the São Paulo State University (Unesp).
