Guy Dessapt was born on 6th of July 1938 in Central France.  As a child, Guy showed an enthusiastic aptitude for painting which led him to the highly acclaimed Art Decoratifs School in Paris.  Here he learned about the masters of genre and grew to respect the Impressionists of the 1800’s.  At this time, Guy spent many days painting in the streets of Montmartre which provided him with direct exposure to a thriving arts community.  He began painting his favorite subjects from cities and countrysides around Europe, which would later become his trademark expression.  The themes emanating from Dessapt’s lifelong passion for travel are depicted through the merging of both visual experience with a uniquely striking impressionist style.

Dessapt can easily call St. Tropez, Venice, Paris or New York City his home.  In fact, for seven years in the 1960’s, Guy worked in New York and explored a variety of artistic styles and techniques.  Currently he spends most of his time living and working in the house built by his grandfather in France with this wife and children.

Guy Dessapt’s paintings are well balanced in composition, rich in surface quality and exhibit a brilliant sense of color.  His accomplished use of mixed media produces a singular interplay between dimensional (or layered) space and pastoral depiction.

Following an outstanding relationship with and several one-man shows in New York and Japan, Guy made a relationship in 2005 with the Arnot Galleries of New York.

Guy Dessapt has been established as a premier talent in the Asian market as well as the American art market.  In Japan today, Guy Dessapt is considered part of the Paris School.
