Guim Tió Zarraluki (Spain)

International Artist

With 87,000 followers on Instagram and 65,000 on Facebook, Guim Tio doesn’t have the time to do anything else but to paint. His strongest following comes from Taiwan where he is treated like royalty each time he visits and has sell out shows. Guim Tió Zarraluki was born in Barcelona. Guim’s signature style started with painting over the pages of magazines but recently he moved into his new studio and with extreme new motivation he has taken it one step further and now he paints people and animals he personally knows directly onto canvas and wood. Guim Tio creates colourful characters, both funny and intriguing like no other artist we know.





My name is Guim Tió Zarrluki and I was born in Barcelona in 1987. I have completed an  Arts and Craft degree at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona. My career in the world of painting began with the exhibition Art<30 on the Sala Parés Gallery of Barcelona in 2010. Also in the same year, I did a selection of work for the private collection of the Patrim Foundation of the University of Barcelona. On September 2011, I presented The Gang of Childhood, a solo exhibition, which was in Artevistas Gallery of Barcelona. There I exhibited “The Facebook Project” which was a work in I painted a selection of pictures of some of my “friends” on Facebook that I had received from them previously. I have also exhibited in many different cities such as Strasbourg (France), Madrid (Spain) or Amman (Jordan) and I am currently exhibiting at the WWA Gallery of California (United States).



Spanish artist Guim Tio is forever evolving. After a succession of magazine portraits which launched his career and sold out worldwide, six months ago Guim made the announcement that he is putting this project behind him once and for all. In the past 6 months Guim has been painting portraits of a different kind and now, once again he decided to venture into a series of faceless portraits with the opening of his first solo show in Australia.
His new and exciting body of work titled the Palette People has been favourably accepted by his 68,000 followers on Instagram. Guim is flying from Spain especially to be with us at his opening. Please join us to make him feel welcome in Australia.
