PACO G Biography

Paco G was born in 1949 in Saltillo, Mexico. His mother was both a portrait painter and his father a sculptor. As expected, his introduction to art began at an early age and his interest has continued.

Paco G's style can best be described as a form of interpretive impressionism. Using rising layers of paint to build an almost three-dimensional effect, he paints from the vantage point of someone relaxing in the shade of a veranda looking out past pillars of classical balconies that shows panoramic vistas of gentle seas lapping against rugged shorelines.

Paco delights in using the impasto technique to create "sculptured paintings" using a brush and palette knife.  The artist’s impasto paintings are vivid visualizations of land, water and memorable dwellings, sculptured with incredible depth and layered with dramatic flashed of color.
