Guido Argentini was born in Florence, Italy. Since 1990 he lives in Los Angeles. His work has been presented during the best art fairs around the world, in famous galleries or got sold via the most important auction houses, like Christie’s. Guido Argentini’s first book got published already ten years ago in 2003. SILVEREYE, presented an exquisite series of studio and landscape nudes. That work was a reflection of the artist’s great personal passion for sculpture and dance.
In his second book, PRIVATE ROOMS, 2005, Guido Argentini offers an entirely different type of personal journey, one where eroticism and beauty are clearly inseparable. Within these pages, we are invited to take a glimpse into a unique ‘feminine universe’. This second book is the result of ten years of photographs, all taken in the intimacy of closed rooms.
REFLECTIONS was published in 2007, a vast collection of photographs of women looking at themselves in mirrors: a sort of unconscious research about the woman who studies herself, falls in love, and gets lost in her own image.
SHADES OF A WOMAN published in 2010. In this new book I began exploring different levels and nuances of the female nature.
ARGENTUM got published recently in 2013. Guido Argentini’s love for dance and for sculpture inspired this series of photographs. The skin, covered with silver paint, becomes an even, shiny surface and the human figure becomes more abstract, like the bronzes of Brancusi – his stongest source of inspiration for this awesome art.
“I feel that I constantly need to find new visions of the world and thus, life and women. All I have accomplished so far has been “for the eyes of a woman”. Women have always been the source of inspiration for all my art forms.
