With over 25 years of experience painting professionally, Andre Guichard is the visionary behind a diverse portfolio of work that can be found in over 2,500 corporate and private collections globally. This self-taught painter is the international curator and spokesperson for the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series, an international contest, with 8,000 artists’ submissions, created to provide a platform for artists to connect with collectors. For the years 2011 to 2016, the Chicago Urban League commissioned Andre to create paintings of the prestigious Bill Berry honorees - presented to Louis Gossett Jr., Jessie Jackson Sr., Rev. Willie Burrows, Phylicia Rashad, Patti LaBelle, Timuel Black and Isobel Wilkerson. Six of his original paintings were featured on canvas totes as part of Walgreens Community Corner program in 7,000 stores nationwide, while another two were used to design fine art totes for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Andre created a jazz-inspired installation in the Bronzeville Jazz McDonald’s restaurant.  He was the official featured artist for the Chicago Jazz Festival in 2012 and 2014.

In 2012, music legend Prince and Rebuild the Dream Village tapped Andre to create Thirty 8’ x 4’ abstract paintings for the “Share Your Story Booth” during their Welcome 2 Chicago concert. The concert provided a fun, interactive place to learn about how people can all rebuild vibrant and sustainable communities.

In September 2016, Andre became the Mayor of Bronzeville. Under his leadership, the benefits of art will continue to be spread globally, with programs like the annual Bronzeville Mayors Ball (August 18, 2018) and First Lady Garden Party (June 23, 2018) to bring awareness to the pillars working to make a better Bronzeville and providing a donation each year to a worthy nonprofit making a difference in the lives of our youth.
