Artist since the age of 16 (exclusively)
Born in London in
1956 to renown Italian artists: Bruno Guaitamacchi, painter,
and Magda ,sculptor and ceramist. His brothers Luca and
Jonathan are successful painters. Living near Bellagio,
on Lake Como, he travels frequently between his studios in
England and Italy to capture the contrasting skies and
climatic conditions in these two countries.
of wild flowers, a glacier, a cornfield, a modern city, a
Mediterranean coast-line, fruit and vegetables on a dining
table… All these different subjects are now to me the way in
which to view the many chapters of a lifetime. It’s like
assembling reports in color.
..."A painting is always an
interpretation, but having stated this, the research for the
“visible concreteness of a significant moment” is for me the

the “open” all the prejudice settings of how we perceive the
world are deeply questioned and colour seems to carry the
chance to view things in other possible ways...
working I may refer to different styles and use what I most
like or may be useful: impressionism, French or Italian;
English and Dutch landscape traditions just to mention a few.
Also expressionist elements and even the more recent texture
experiences in painting may be implied for rendering the
experience of a day, of "those" hours and the place chosen (or
encountered) for realizing the work.
I have been described
“Classical”, but I know that the direct relation with the
subjects, a modern colour sensitivity, and the inevitable
changes in the landscape itself, result in a mirrored reality
that consequently reflects our time.
It is very satisfying
to know that there is appreciation now in many countries. Many
people have acknowledged how my paintings have slightly
modified or sometimes reinforced their way of perceiving
places, seasons and colours. I believe that, after all, this
may result in a contribution for a new sensitivity for the
world, and especially for Nature.

he uses techniques that are of old traditions from French and
Italian impressionism and also uses old masterful Dutch and
English landscape traditions. Paolo is an exquisite artist who
paints on instinct and creates artwork worthy of the
