When Michelle Guintu was around 6 years old she asked her mom to draw something; she drew a flower. Little Michelle fell in love. Since then, she has been making things. When asked “what kind of art do you do” she jumbles her words and things get awkward. Maybe because she plays with a little of everything, from sewing cigarettes together, to McDonald’s paper mache dolls, to her most recent tempera paintings of hip hop artists. Her work was once described as “kindercore” : part kindergarten part hardcore. Guintu uses references from her teenage years in a somewhat low-budget assemblage of sorts. Her work takes on a shrine like quality—embracing the past in a nostalgic reverence. She graduated with a BFA in painting in 2006. Currently she lives and works in San Francisco.
