Guelfenbein graduated from the Accademia delle Belle Arti, Brera, Milan, Italy. His aesthetic is inspired by his nomadic lifestyle and sensibilities. After travelling through Italy and Lake Varese, the artist settled in Paris where he paints his thick, expressive and colourful pieces enhanced with South American energy. Loyal to the abstract genre, Guelfenbein displays an overflowing zeal with his fluid lines and swirls filled with intense, yet controlled, vigour. Through his soulful expression of liquid abstractions, his thick acrylic textured canvases reveal a process of discovery of infinite patterns and never-ending forms that much resemble a cosmic creation. 

Guelfenbein has held numerous successful exhibitions around the world from Europe, America, Asia and Australia, including a personal show at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Santiago, Chile, in 1997.
