“The house, the stars, the desert – what makes them beautiful is something that cannot be seen.” An artist who loves painting portraits, yet does so through hide-and-seek, Guim Tio’s understanding of human nature goes far beyond depictions of faces. People resonate visually with beautiful yet unsettling things, finding themselves deeply engrossed. And Guim? He’s an observer. His process of makeup is a ceremony, creating balance by discarding what was captured. Through him, all portraits are blessed with eternal life; nameless, without labels and corresponding baggage, giving lost spirits a new appearance.
