Guido Borelli

Guido Borelli

Artist Guido Borelli da Caluso was born in 1952, in Caluso, Italy at the foothills of the Italian Alps. Born into an artistic family, (his grandfather was a woodcarver and furniture maker, and his paternal uncle and aunt paint) young Guido first discovered painting somewhere between the ages of 4 to 6 years old. With the encouragement of his family, Guido’s first art challenge came at age 13 in the form of a public award. Although he did not win this art award, he continued to make artistic strides, and had his first personal art exhibit at the young age of 17. He received his art training at Accademia Albertina, in Turin, which was founded in 1672, at the special request of the King. Beginning with Guido’s first exhibition at the Ars Plauda Gallery in Turin, Italy in 1969, he has continued to have exhibitions around the world in Uruguay, Holland, Egypt, United Kingdom, Malta, Norway, Germany, United States, Spain, Russia, Bulgaria, France, Poland, Costa Rica, Kenya, Ethiopia. In addition to these rotating exhibitions, he has permanent exhibitions at Gallery 1000 in Carmel by the Sea,CA,Atelier des artistes in Nice,France and at the Galleria d’arte Sangiorgio in Portofino, Italy.

“I am a true lover of nature and of everything gentle. My landscapes and houses combine reality and imagination. First, I store in my mind all views that I find interesting. Later, when I need a subject, those views resurface in my memory, and I paint what I selectively remember of them, with intrinsically personal modifications.” – Guido Borelli

Guido’s painting style is influenced by the Italian realistic style beginning in the 1900’s, especially by the artists Boldini and De Nittis. Inspired by the movement of shadows, his oil paintings reflect nature as their focal points depicting Italian landscapes, homes and villas of Northern Italy and the Alps. Today his work is highly acclaimed and he has worldwide collectors.
