About Guido Mauas

Guido Mauas attended the New York Academy of Arts to study Human Figure with Mark Tennant, and was twice awarded a scholarship to study with Antonio López García in Spain. In 2019 he was assigned an Odd Nerdrum scholarship for the year 2020.

His work focuses mainly on the human form. Letting light and shadow speak for themselves, each painting is for him a new exploration on the enigma of the soul and body. Keen observation, fluidity, and a solid understanding of anatomy are the foundations of his work.
