* February 2009: First minister Nicola Sturgeon's portrait is called "Naughty Nicola"
The portrait of Scotland first minister who was at the health minister at the time had a big press coverage and Nicola Sturgeon's partner Peter Murrell bought the painting.
I am not a fan of Susan Boyle but for me, even the britain's got talent star Susan Boyle can look a bit sexy, funny and cheeky with a cigar and a champagne bottle. This painting created "funny" articles about death threats that I suppossedly received from hundreds of histerical christian fans of "Subo" from America.

*March 2010: Carla Bruni's portrait is
called "A first lady's morning".
This is a facebook friend from Toronto who, after asking for my permission, has had a copy of my painting "Secret admirer" tattooed on his leg.
*August 2011: These vinyl posters of my paintings were on display in an empty shop in Portobello in Edinburgh. They were installed in August 2011 by the council and Braewellgalleries. They had to be removed a week later due to complaints from local residents.
An article about the controversy was published in the evening times in Edinburgh and the daily mail.
Thanks for the entertainement! and thanks everyone for your support

These are the vinyls posters of 2 of my paintings displayed in the street of Glasgow along with the artwork of 5 other artists. "The style mile project" has been realised by Braewell galleries and the city council of Glasgow and is a really good idea to promote artists.
The posters were in the corner of ingram street in front of the Royal exchange square. The other artists are: Frank Mc fadden, Richard Woods, Richard Whincop, Joe o'brien and Ally Thompson.

"Hollande is off his head"
Cartoon about François Hollande's very private love affair..
“Guilbaud’s work is expressed through the female form.
She paints long legged, fisnet tights, basque clothed, large breasted women who, with their tousled hair and pouting lips, appear at first glance like preparation sketches for airbrushed playboy lovelies. Looking at her work, a simple interpretation might suggest that if there was a Turner prize in the offing, then James Bond would have to be among the judges.”
