Alvaro Guillot, the son of a diplomat, has traveled throughout the world. He lived the life of the existentialist with the young painters in St. Germaine de Pres. Through his friend, artist Charles Levier, he was influenced to pick up the brush and paint. But branching out into his own changing style, he experimented with natural surrealism that grows with his development in later pictures into abstract realism.

Guillot has been described as a Surrealist with blocks of color and the arrangement of shapes within the canvas rather than in the nature of the subject matter itself.

In his work, a house becomes less important as a house, and more important as a house, and more important as a pattern of interrelated colors and shapes. This is evident throughout all of his landscapes, and more particularly in his studies of still objects.

In the still lifes, he works in patterns, fusing them, and relating them by virtue of shape alone.
