Domenico Antonio di Guglielmo holds Bachelor’s degrees in physics and fine arts, a Certificate in education and a Master’s degree in art education. Drawn to the classical artwork of the Old Masters as well as to aboriginal art and natural, organic forms, he works in marble, granite, steel, bronze, limestone and wood to create sculptures pertaining to everyday life and the relationship between man and nature. As well as teaching, he has taken part in many exhibitions and several international sculpture symposiums. These include the 5th International Granite Symposium in Lithuania (2005), where his monumental Sky Gazing earned him first prize, and the Symposium international de sculpture sur pierre in Julienne (France, 2006), where he once again placed first. He received the “Prix Spécial du Jury” for his body of work at the 22nd Grand Concours Annuel organized by the Cercle des Artistes Peintres et Sculpteurs du Québec (CAPSQ).
