MICHEL GUYON (France)
Michel Guyon was born August 11, 1947. In the late 1960s Guyon studied at the Beaux Art School in Nantes, France.
With Guyon’s passion for music, opera and painting the artist also gained experience in theatrical productions. He began creating theater set décor, costumes and posters. Working with Mr. Baty, Michel discovered the drawings of Paul Dauce and Joel Dabin. Guyon worked with them on theater set décor.
In the 1970s, Guyon worked on the set décor of several lyrical spectacles, including Figaro, The Magic Flute, Don Giovanni, Carmen, Faust, etc. Michel Guyon also worked for the Jean Marais Festival and the Francais Huster Company, “les Treteaux de France” and various summer festivals around France.
The artist created scenery for the Angers Opera House and began to paint on canvas. Guyon’s talent of set and costume design permeates his artistic works beautifully. The combination of a poetry of colors and glaze and his forceful touch create a unique sense of strength in his paintings.
Michel Guyon currently exhibits in Nantes, France and Chetkin Gallery is proud to present Guyon’s paintings.
