For the past 15 years, Guy Stanley Philoche has been attracting international attention with his work and altruistic approach to the contemporary art world. His colorful textured abstractions and other works based on board games are known to art lovers and collectors in America and abroad.
His paintings are in the collections of numerous corporations (including Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch and Barclay Investments), as well as the private collections of celebrities such as Uma Thurman, George Clooney and Julian Schnabel. His works are compelling without being coercive, in large part due to the way he suggests realms of experience more than the visual where the mind can freely wander.
Philoche believes it is a moral imperative to give-back and has generously donated his time and work to benefit a great many charities over the years including The American Cancer Society’s Pink and Black Tie Gala, Kids With Cameras, My Language Project The Leukemia Needs Foundation, ARTrageous! and Tibet House.
He is also one of a handful of artists who have committed to buy a painting whenever he sells a painting in order to support fellow artists.
