Guy Buffet was born in Paris on January 13, 1943. His parents were had a restaurant business.
"I was born in Paris in the district of Montparnasse on January 13, 1943. My Father, Jules Cesar Buffet, was 65 years old at the time and still the Postmaster of that district far beyond his retirement due to post war circumstances. My father knew and loved Montparnasse. During my early youth, my father loved to take "his son" for walks in the district and show me the famous landmarks such as, "La Coupole" , one of my favorite eateries even today, where famous artists such as Modigliani, Picasso, Chagall, Braque and Foujita would spend most of their days and evenings. As a Postmaster, he also knew where those artists lived and would show me their houses and studios and tell endless stories about their works and their lives.
Those artists becames the heroes of my youth and the models of my future life. I really started to be interested in painting when I was 12 years old. One summer I was invited to spend some time in the country with an artist friend of my family and I fell in love with the smells and the feelings of an artist's studio. During this visit, I asked if I could spend the day in the studio and paint my own canvas. By the end of the day, I had completed a large 2x3 foot painting I called "Sunset on Fishing Harbor in Brittany". The painting surprised every one for it's composition and wonderful colors and brush strokes, and it was so well received that the artist friend wouldn't let me use his studio ever again! That did it; I decided that I will become an artist on my own.
When I was 14, I moved to the south of France with my mother, to a beautiful little fishing harbor called "Sanary", not far from St. Tropez. I quit school to enlist in the Beaux Arts School of Toulon in order to study art full time. I loved that school under the bright sun of Provence and have returned to the coast many times since. Most teachers were professional artists of the School of Provence, with pallettes of bright colors and canvasses that were pure joy and love of life, or as we say in French; joie de vivre! This was immediately contagious and would leave a mark on my life to this day."
