Guy de Potesta

Biography

Nature has always inspired the artist. Realistic wildlife painting has become one of the most classical arts. To bring more lightness and modernity, he has chosen a new material, plexiglass, on which he makes the subject appear with sobriety.

Furthermore, plexiglass allows him to create a 3D painting with the animal on a foreground panel and elements of his environment on a background panel incorporating the real shadow of the animal on it too.

For his paintings on canvas, generally raw linen or cotton, he has privileged the bareness of the subject without any or very few elements of his surroundings. To give more strength to the composition, he prefers larger formats (120×160 cm or 120×120 cm).
