Press release

New Haven artist Chucho (Jesse) Guillen's interest in painting started from a young age and has since been fueled by his travels, life experiences, and was inspired by his experience studying with Fr. William B. Wasson (1924—2006) in Arizona.

Mr. Guillen's technique is motivated by freedom that forms uninhibited brush strokes, and a sense of the artist's passion and inner-energy emerges in his art works.

His vibrant style and fresh look allows the mundane to become a point of departure, which in turn becomes revitalized and invigorated. This emotionally and energetically charged approach to painting develops a fresh perspective to art.

Mr. Guillen paints murals and is very involved in public art in New Haven, Connecticut, whilst also being privately acquired by collectors and large companies in the USA. Mr. Guillen has developed a following in Amherst, Massachusetts, SoHo in New York City, and many other venues. His painting "Woman in Rapture" was accepted to the 2009 Biennale Chianciano in Chianciano Terme, Tuscany, Italy, and is included in the Biennale Catalog.
