Der Künstler Guillermo Forchino in Aktion Der Künstler Guillermo Forchino (*1952 in Rosario, Argentinien) ist in Frankreich einer der bekanntesten Cartoonisten. Er lebt und arbeitet in Paris.

In den frühen 1980er Jahren hat er angefangen, mit verschiedenen Materialien an der Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Rosario, Argentinien, zu experimentieren, um die richtige Gestalt für seine dreidimensionale Kunst zu finden. Seine Studien gingen an der Universität Sorbonne in Paris weiter. Er lernte, wie man mit altmodischen Materialien wie Wachs, Resin, Leim und traditionellen Verbindungen arbeitet.

Mit der Erfahrung in den an der Universität Sorbonne gelernten Methoden ist er nach Rosario zurückgekehrt, wo er anfängt, gegenständliche Skulpturen aus geballtem Stoff herzustellen. Dabei benutzte er zart gefärbtes Pappmaché für die sichtbaren Teile. In den späten 1980er Jahren hat Forchino angefangen, Resin für seine "komischen" Skulpturen zu benutzen.

Die Mischung aus Forchinos großem Sinn für Humor, mit einem starken Hauch Ironie verbunden, haben zur komischen Kunst Forchinos geführt. Eine Reihe ironischer und ungewöhnlicher Szenen wie: überbelastete alte Autos zur Ferienabreise bereit, Flugzeuge, Motorräder, Militärdiktatoren in motorisierten Badewannen, eine Mischung aus komischen Persönlichkeiten und seine Serie ironischer zweidimensionaler Tableaux, die die Absurdität der modernen Welt darstellen.

Der Künstler hat regelmäßige Ausstellungen in Frankreich, Argentinien und den Niederlanden.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

Collective term for all casting processes that ars mundi carries out with the help of specialized art foundries.

Cast stone
Equivalent of artificial marble, with the difference that the substitute stone in powder form is used instead of marble powder.

Cold cast bronze
Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

ARA wooden copy
In order to guarantee absolute fidelity to the original, an artificially manufactured imitation wood is used as a base material which has typical wood characteristics: density, workability, color and surface structure.

Ceramic casting
As a rule castable clay is used in ceramic casting, which then is fired and possibly glazed. Plaster molds are often used instead of the usual rubber molds in ceramic casting and in porcelain production.

Bronze casting
In this case, the thousand-year-old lost-wax technique is used. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.
