NOTES: Tuk-Tuk Papa, papa, today we’re going to the beach, ok? Yippee, we’re going to the beach, hurray, hurray cried Antonin jumping up and down while pulling with all his strength on his father’s shirt. Oh no, no, today we are going on another tour by tuc tuc to discover the streets of the city and its monuments answered Dominique to his son. But papa, we already went by tuc tuc yesterday and saw 12 monuments, 6 markets, 4 temples and 2 museums said a concerned Antonin. You will see how much fun you will have! said Maud, the mother. I’m going to take some great pictures which we can watch back home. I have already taken 628. Isn’t that marvelous? Sure, continued Dominique, I’ve already taken 7 hours of video, these modern cameras are great. Today, I began filming as soon as we got up, when we were brushing our teeth, when we flushed the toilet. I also have a spectacular scene of ants taking away the crumbs from the breakfast table. I recorded everything! Papa, I want to go to the beach! begged Antonin desperately. I really do not know why we take you with us. With what this trip is costing us and you, the only thing you are interested in is going to the beach to spread sand everywhere. No, no and no! I’m not going! screamed Antonin crying. That’s great, don’t stop crying! said the father, filming the tears that streamed down Antonin’s cheeks. Sensational, this scene even Spielberg couldn’t have done it! said Dominique smiling, proud of his artistic talent

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.
