American Contemporary

Guy Salvato, a Glen Cove, Long Island native, attended the University of Cincinnati, where he graduated at the top of his class, earning a BS in Advertising Design. During his formative years at UC, Guy studied drawing and painting under Robert Fabe and Reginald Grooms.

As part of the co-op program at UC, Guy interned at J. Walter Thompson in New York City for almost four years, gaining valuable experience toward his future career. For the next 35 years, Guy and his partner, Fred Coe, ran a successful design studio, gaining international recognition as one of the finest corporate design firms in the US. Their work has been recognized and chronicled in every major trade publication within the world of graphic and communicating arts and advertising, nationally and internationally.

Guy’s love for the game of golf has directed his energies and talent to expressing himself through the medium of watercolor and oils. “Having worked with magic markers throughout most of my career in graphic arts, the medium of watercolor seemed to afford the logical transition for me,” Guy says.  “I derive fulfillment from it because of its relative immediacy and instant gratification. As for my subject matter, the game of golf,” he continued, “ my goal is to capture the beauty, the color, the mystique, and the nuances of a particular golf course, preferably at twilight, when shadows are long and all is at peace. Those are the moments I try to capture. The rest I leave to the imagination of the viewer.”

Guy has served as visiting instructor of design at The Columbus College of Art & Design, has been a guest lecturer at various universities, and has served as Judge for national and international graphics and advertising competitions. His paintings have been exhibited in a number of galleries and were featured in The Academy of Golf Art’s 2005 Juried Exhibition. His paintings were also featured in Golf Style: Homes & Collections Inspired by the Course and the Clubhouse, by Vicky Moon, 2010.

“I was introduced to Guy’s work early in my research process and knew immediately that his golf course landscape paintings would be ideal for the book,” says Golf Style author, Vicky Moon. “Guy’s paintings are truly unique in style and substance and his fondness for the golf/art lifestyle embodies all that is central to Golf Style.”
