Born on April 20, 1974 in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil, Gui Calil holds a degree in Communication specializing in Marketing and Advertising.

His background intertwines with that of design on paper as his family business has been providing graphic services, including unique customized printed material, since 1966.

Playing around with reams of paper since childhood, he discovered the pleasure of turning his thoughts into colors and printed shapes. His passion for art and design, forever burning in his restless soul, found the ideal outlet in works of acrylic on canvas.

With no limitations of space or tools, his work is a transcription in colors of his torments and most visceral yearnings, defined by the artist as the "aesthetics of the soul".
