Paolo Guido is an artist who draws from the classical pictorial tradition, from etchings, engravings, drawings in sanguine and copper and silver pointed pencils, typical of the 1500s and 1600s. His works recount seasons and moments of contemporary life, with wisdom and a rediscovered religiosity, inspired by ancient legends and mysterious tales of a popular history and peasant life, illuminated by the shadows of the sun and the lights of the night. Paolo Guido’s painting offers a reinterpretation of Renaissance “vedutism”, as in the art of the great American artist Mark Ryden, leader and icon of the surrealist pop movement, who in turn draws inspiration from the masterpieces of Leonardo, Giorgione and Titian.
