Angelou Guingon is interested in intuitively arranging pictorial images of people, animals, transportation and other everyday objects.

Through stylized use of perspective, color, form, pattern, repetition, light and shadow, icons from personal experiences and fragments of imagination emerge in a pseudo-realistic environment.

His paintings are about formulating, scribbling, and preserving stories where anything we can visualize is able to be included in an open-ended script that welcomes the unexpected.
