Mr. Guichard is a young innovative Chicago artist, and proud member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. He defines his work by stating, "Art allows me to express myself through visual media. I create abstract artworks that convey life experiences and ideas using various themes. My artwork is very animated. I not only want the viewers to see my artwork, but I also want them to feel the emotion that comes through the canvas. My art expresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of life. I enjoy putting my life on canvas." 

A selection of three paintings from the "Seven Degrees of Separation" are currently on exhibit on the walls of our Onyx Art Salon.  There are two works from earlier series as well.  View the exhibits page to gain your own impressions, and feel free to visit the space to experience them first hand.
