About the Artist

To experience a Scott Guion painting is to happen upon a real place, just in time to witness a brilliant mob prank pulled off by an improbable cast of characters in an alternate reality. His murals open landscapes where the familiar juxtaposes with the surreal. His design elements segue from graceful to raucous, hitting any note in between.
