AUT 002 Skier 60-85537
The ski instructor had told me clearly "you should get off at the first stop on the ski lift”. Well, here I am, I didn’t listen and I find myself… at the last stop, on a black trail looking down from the top of the mountain, eyes bulging, at an endless slope of 45°. A bead of sweat drips down my forehead forming a stalactite at the end of my nose. Two young girls were watching me, there was no way that I would give up, I made it look like “this is going to be easy for me”, I adjust my goggles, lean forward, stick my poles in the snow and launch myself at full speed. The next day in room 215 at the valley hospital, thanks to the one eye I could still open, I saw five doctors surrounding me, surprised to see me awake. “We have never seen anyone go down the mountain at such speed”, said one of the doctors. A nurse asked if she could take a selfie with me. It seems like I have become a star.
During his studies, artist Guillermo Forchino discovered and mastered classic techniques and materials. He began creating figures made from wrapped bands of cloth where the visible parts(hands and head) were made from wax and papier mache colored with natural pigments. He subsequently chose poly resins to create figures that resemble the world of comic strip and cartoon characters. They are handled with finesse and given a soul and a story. Every single item is wrapped in the unique Forchino Newspaper with a special label attached, individually numbered and identified by a stamp on the bottom of each piece. A unique and numbered certificate of authenticity completes each package. When a suitable quantity of each item has been produced and sold, the item is retired to help keep its worth.
