This painting comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

The wildlife representation in Guy de Potesta's paintings derives from his keen interest in it, having gotten the chance to have lived among the marvellous fauna of the African bush and thanks to his new residency in South America that offers exciting opportunities for new encounters!

Quite quickly Guy has tried to leave the common path of pictural representation of the animal. He has integrated it with aesthetic objects of human industry suppressing the common sense of proportion to unite two distinct worlds and thus create a new and quite absurd one!

The objects he chooses, generally in glass, bring more colours, and at the same time transparency, resulting in a consequent lightness of the composition. 

He also like the marketing side of the object itself, not for the consumerism it represents, but in order to offer the observer landmarks in a world he knows better than the animal world! And even to bring back good memories.

The female representation also follow that same logic. It also allows him to vary the themes. And in those paintings the observer knows both united worlds!

Guy has also been exhibiting for two years:
