Guiramand, Paul

Guiramand was born in France in 1926. He studied at the Paris National Art Academy in 1945 and received the Prix de Rome in 1952. He began holding solo exhibitions in 1962 at Geneva, Chicago, Paris, Japan and several other locations in the world. 

Guiramand's style is reserved yet bold and is filled with lively lines and vibrant colours on simple backgrounds.

He was also a set designer, and a lithographer. In 1954 he began working on a series of lithographs for Ferdnand Mourloi in Paris, The Atlelier of Mourlot was a magnet for many artists of the day including Chagall and Miro, whom Guiramand met and developed lifelong friendships with.

He died in Paris in 2008.
