In 2004, Guillermo Borrajo founded Woof Art to celebrate the unique relationship between pets and people. As an animal lover, he understood that pet owners desired the very best for their four-legged friends. So his pet portraits came to portray an inner world where animals and humans coexist at the same level of harmony, love, and fun.
Guillermo Borrajo, the man behind the canvas, is a native of Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 1989 he settled in Los Angeles, and began a series he dubbed the Urban Art Shows, a gallery exhibit on the streets of Los Angeles. These open air showings were not only free to pedestrians, but brought Borrajo and his artwork a good deal of attention throughout the city as residents asked each other if they’d seen any of the colorful paintings of dogs in spaceships or cats on scooters on Crescent Heights, Beverly Boulevard or many of the other streets Borrajo showcased his colorful, stylized art. His first foray into the world of entertainment came one morning when a production crew pulled in to his studio’s front courtyard. Soon after over a dozen of his pieces were displayed in the short film, The Outlaws.
Next, Borrajo was commissioned to do a portrait of Sharon Osborne’s Pomeranian, Minnie, made famous in her own right through the MTV reality show, The Osbornes. Although Borrajo is a behind the scenes kind of guy, his artwork is making headlines. National magazines and television, including Southern Living Magazine and Southern Living Presents, have featured Borrajo and his head turning artwork. USA Weekend Magazine dubbed Borrajo, “… the next Andy Warhol.” His art has a style and feel that is unique in the American experience of pop culture!
