(Rio de Janeiro / RJ, 1980) Guilherme Ginane's pictorial practice is an attempt to bewilder the notion of the "conventional" perspective from a claustrophobic trompe-l'oeil, where transparency and opacity, empty and full, figure and background fight each other for a place. It is in this struggle that the surface of the painting gains different times and makes it so that objects and figures receive independent points of view, establishing a coexistence on the same plane, but of parallel universes. His compositions form a shifting totality that is slightly distorted by contradiction and by the incompatibility between fragmentary autonomies.

He has a degree in Social Communication from Universidade Gama Filho, Rio de Janeiro, and in Arts from Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro, and was also monitored by the artist Paulo Pasta, from 2010 to 2013. Ginane had his first solo show at Galeria Millan, São Paulo, SP (2017) and participated in the group show Desassossego, which brought together young artists at the invitation of well-known painters at Galeria Estação, São Paulo, SP (2017). Besides that, he also participated in group shows at Pivô, São Paulo, SP (2016); at Museu de Arte de Ribeirão Preto, SP, (2015) and at Galeria Marcelo Guarnieri, São Paulo, SP (2014). He participated in the Salão de Arte de Ribeirão Preto, in 2014 and 2013, and was an artist-in-residence at Pivô, São Paulo, SP between 2015 and 2016. His work is featured in the collection at Instituto Figueiredo Ferraz, Ribeirão Preto, SP.
