Guido Salimbeni is a professional artist and 3D expert based in Florence, producing oil paintings with traditional old master techniques combined with 3D printing technology.

He attended the Nemo digital academy school in Florence and several fine art workshops and courses, including “painting in plein air” with Marc Dalessio and “Painting the human figure like the old master” workshop at the Angel School in Florence and “painting portrait in oil” with Adam Markovic in his florentine studio.
