Dry champagne and drier humor is the house specialty in Guy Buffet’s “Restaurant des Capucines.” Making his first watercolor sale at age 13 to an American tourist in his family’s restaurant in Paris, Buffet now has a substantial catalog featuring delightfully quirky, whimsical culinary parodies. Buffet’s work carries no message other than an invitation to enjoy his charming dreams and fantasies.
Internationally acclaimed artist Guy Buffet’s art exhibits a sublime sense of burlesque while exuding just the right amount of quirkiness. From his French culinary art to his dour, wind-blasted Scotsmen on the moors, his subtle humor is infectious. His training at Paris’s most prestigious art schools, and his works’ inclusion in several museums keeps his art in-demand by private and corporate collectors. He’s also held numerous one-man shows worldwide and has worked on national ad campaigns including Absolut Vodka, Aloha Airlines, and the Tour de France.
