Out of Their Heads: Armando Guiller Artist Talk

Guiller was born in Havana, Cuba in 1961. He initially studied mechanical engineering at the Institute of Technology MOA, Santiago de Cuba. In 1987, he received a B.A. with a specialization in sculpture from the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts in Havana. After immigrating to the United States, he worked for over a decade as a mechanical engineer, designing parts and processes for General Motors and Cadillac, as well as working internationally. He has pursued the arts full-time since 2000 and he has exhibited his work at Ringling Museum of Arts,  FL; the Dactyl Foundation, NYC; Lehman College Art Gallery, NYC, and recently had a major Solo show at William Paterson University Gallery. His work is also included  in numerous private collections in Florida, New York, Ohio, as well as in France and Mexico. Recently, he has been using a CNC mill and 3D printer in his studio to create his newest series titled “Euclidean Works,” which are inspired by the Golden ratio and investigate how to reconcile a curve with a line.
