Wine & Art! Meet the artist: Jean Guitard | Thurs, Nov, 28 | 6 – 8pm | FREE Meet the Artist: Jean Guitard, Puzzle Painter. Wanderer. “My style is my own – inspired by graffiti in Mexico and my singular experiences.” Spectacular, tantalizing, awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping. All adjectives used by Vine Styles’ customers on first (and second) exposure to Jean’s Puzzle-Paintings series, currently on display in the store. A lifelong artiste, Jean’s first art showing was at the age-of-17 at the Chateau Champlain, in his hometown of Montreal. Since moving to Calgary in 1990, he’s split time between careers in the art world and the hospitality industry. A fixture in the community of Sunnyside, it’s where Jean has lived and played ever since, working either at Brasserie Kensington, or at his sun-drenched art studio of Memorial Drive. Jean’s work is displayed on the walls on-among others – Vendome Gallery Cafe, the Leighton Centre, Ranchmen’s Private Club, and The Loft Galeria in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Now 60-years of age, he dedicated full-time to the art world sex-years ago, after being inspired on a trip to Puerto Vallarta by Mayan artworks and believe it or not, street graffiti. In his current style, called Puzzle Painting, Jean paints when he feels a kaleidoscope of moments and images that he expresses on canvas. His work is intricate; with dabs of encircled gold, delicate string-like strands and geometric squares. Vivid and visually pleasing, every canvas tells a story. Come and meet the artist and discuss his thoughts, ideas and inspirations… oh, and enjoy a taste of wine… or two.
