Born in 1988 in Paris to a musician father and a stylist mother, Angelina Guez is well-versed in art and music. Self-taught from a tender age, she practices design, painting and sculpture. She is also a singer-songwriter-performer.
Angelina first showed her work in 2016, at Gallery 21 in Paris VI, followed by exhibitions at the Town Hall of the first district of Paris, and at StreetGallery, Paris, as well as by two ephemeral spectacles at Le Consulat Paris and at the Bellevilloise.
In 2017 she presented her work in Lyon, at Galerie Superposition.
In 2018 she participated in a group exhibition in Saint-Ouen and in 2019 she drew live a Roche Bobois chair.
In the same year, she held two solo exhibitions: “Les fleurs du bien” at Galerie 8, Paris and “Les fleurs du soleil” at the Hotel des Gouverneurs in Bastia.
According to the artist herself, her hands work faster than her words, and urge her to draw and sculpt. Many works of art have made an impression on her from early on, mainly Picasso’s “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust”, Modigliani’s sculpture “Head of a Woman” and Fernand Leger’s ceramic “Face with Two Hands”.
She is fascinated with the art of Matisse, his colours, portraits and forms.
Angelina creates figures around flowers, the sun, the sea, butterflies and Man, keeping in tune with her brushes.
She listens to Chet Baker, Bill Evans, Luiz Bonfa, Bob Marley, Ella Fitzgerald, Ibrahim Ferre, Claude Nougaro, Rita Payés, Joâo Gilberto, Serge Gainsbourg, Ruben Gonzalez, Buena Vista Social Club, Natalia Lafourcade, Silvia Perez Cruz, Yves Montand as well as her father’s compositions which inspire her to create in colour. Omnipresent in her body of work, colour for Angelina equals emotion.
She dances and sings with hues and shades. In her own words: “I am trying just as much to get to know them, to join them in harmony, to craft my own colours”.
