The Charmers Les Charmeurs

NOTES: The Charmers After having won the lottery, Charlie and Pete insisted that they be addressed as Charles Edward and Pierre Henri. The first thing they did was to buy some designer brand clothes, Hollywood style sunglasses, and a tanning lamp so they could have that perfect Caribbean tan. They had the hair removed from their chests and backsides and started using anti-wrinkle cream. They didn�t forget to buy flamboyant gold watches and to top everything off, they bought themselves the very best, their dream car, a collector�s convertible that became the envy of the neighborhood. They went out for a ride around town pretending to be VIPs. They stopped at a street corner with the music full blast. Talking very load, they exchanged the 5 or 6 words in French that they knew. Seeing two sculptured beauties approaching, they said to themselves, these two are ours. When the two babes passed in front of them, Charles Edward puffed up his chest, stroke a suave pose, and cocking his head to the side, said excuse me, girls, haven�t we already see each other somewhere? The two girls completely ignored him, and without saying a word, continued their way. Desperate, Pierre Henri, risked throwing in, uh, girls you wouldn�t like to take a little car ride, would you? And he heard one girl saying to the other just where do these clowns come from? After an hour without having the slightest success, Charlie said And what if we went to have a beer? Ehh, sure, why not? answered Pete. Their heads down and dragging their feet, they went in the direction of the corner bar to finish the night as usual.

Guillermo Forchino bio

From the early 1980’s, Guillermo Forchino experiments with various materials to create his works of art. This research began in the city of his birth Rosario Argentina at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and then continued during three years of studies in art restoration and conservation at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France. During his studies he discovered and mastered many classic techniques and materials. After completing his studies in Paris, Guillermo returned to Argentina where he directed the Juan B. Castagnino atelier of art restoration for the Museum of Beaux-Arts in Rosario. It was during this period that Forchino began creating figures made from wrapped bands of cloth where the visible parts of the body (head and hands) were made from wax and paper maché colored with natural pigments. From the end of the 1980’s, Forchino chose polyresins to create figurines and scenes that often resemble the world of comic strip and cartoon characters. These are typically unusual and humorous subjects such as a family leaving on vacation in an overloaded car with flat tires, or a tired old American pick-up truck from the 1950’s with equally tired passengers. Mr. Forchino has also chosen to create other modes of transportation such as boats, planes and motorcycles and has even used a floating bathtub in his works. His creations are always full of humor and finesse and are created with a unique character. In recent years, Guillermo has also created a line of individuals in sports and a variety of professions that was named the “ Professionals Series”. Also these creations have found a large collector audience worldwide. The average height of these figurines is 45 cm. Recently a smaller version of the Professionals was introduced the ” Special editions Series” , approx. 50% smaller . Guillermo has regular expositions in France, in Argentina and in the Netherlands. Mr. Forchino lives and works in Paris, his workshop is only a few steps away from the world famous Père Lachaise cemetery. In 2003 a collaboration between Guillermo and VMM resulted in the worldwide introduction of replicas of Guillermo’s work. These reproductions are fully handmade and hand painted, just like the originals, under the supervision of Guillermo himself, by highly skilled artisans in the Far East. Some of these artworks are reproduced in the same size as the original that Mr. Forchino created, some are reduced in size to 50 or 75% of the original. Through these initiatives, the Comic Art of Guillermo Forchino is available for a large group of art lovers in the form of limited editions, in numbered series. Found only in specially selected stores, each piece is identified by a stamped signature and a unique number on the bottom of the item. A numbered certificate of authenticity completes each package.
