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 works of art in volume. This research began at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Rosario, Argentina and then continued with three years of studies in art restoration and conservation at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France. During his studies he discovered and mastered classic techniques and materials. After completing his studies in Paris, he returned to Argentina where he directed the Juan B. Castagnino atelier of art restoration for the Museum of Beaux-Arts of 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 poly resins to create figures and scenes that resemble the world of comic strip and cartoon characters. They 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. He has used other modes of transportation such as boats, planes and motorcycles and has even used a bathtub for a military dictator. His characters are always handled with humor and finesse and given a soul. Guillermo Forchino lives and works in Paris in his workshop two steps away from the Pere Lachaise cemetery. The Comic Art of Guillermo Forchino is now available for a larger group of art lovers in the form of limited edition, numbered series. Found only in specially selected stores, each piece is identified by a numbered stamp on the bottom. It comes wrapped in the newspaper "The Forchino Times" along with the autobiography of Forchino and pictures of his collection. A certificate of authenticity completes the package.
