Guillaume Desmarets

Guillaume Desmarets was born in Brussels in 1980. After spending his teenage years in the Paris suburbs, he returned to Belgium and settled permanently in Brussels following his art studies at Saint-Luc Tournai. A member of the “Farm Prod” collective, Guillaume, aka “Guitar”, has been painting in a variety of forms for over 15 years. His influences come as much from urban art as from contemporary painting. His paintings combine different graphic motifs within portraits or scenes expressing his own emotions or other moments in life. Whether abstract or figurative, there are recurring elements in his paintings, such as tribal motifs, iconographic themes and traces of life.
